The Verdict

Having scored a remarkable total of 16 goals in the Championship this season for Blackburn, Brereton Diaz would have been hoping to add to his tally in yesterday’s clash with Stoke.

However, the 22-year-old was kept quiet by the Potters’ defence as his team-mate Khadra produced the match-winning moment in this fixture.

In order for Blackburn to launch a push for a top-six finish in the coming months, they will need Brereton Diaz to maintain his fitness as well as his consistency.

Currently averaging an impressive WhoScored match rating of 7.20 in the second-tier, the former Forest man will be determined to fire his side to victory in their upcoming showdown with rivals Preston at Ewood Park.
