History of the Blackburn Rovers v Swansea City fixture
Swansea City travel to take on Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park on Saturday afternoon, and have come away with little in previous meetings, having been beaten a depressing 14 out of 18 times.
The last time the two teams met at Blackburn Rovers was way back in the black-and-white days of March 1984, when they eased past their opponents in a high-scoring 4-1 thriller, in a Second Division match.
