Blackburn Rovers win and both teams to score

Blackburn began the Championship campaign in positive sense but a lapse in concentration allowed Swansea to school. There will be more such moments in the match against Morecambe, but Blackburn should progress into the second round without any difficulty even if their primary focus is on getting promotion to the Premier League. Blackburn have not been knocked out in the first round of the EFL Cup since the 2015-16 season.

Total goals over 2.5

Morecambe’s League One season is expected to be troublesome in terms of their defensive record and there were signs in the opening game against Ipswich after the team failed to hold onto a lead twice. Blackburn were quite efficient against Swansea but this game should provide goals at both ends, as Morecambe have enough firepower to exploit any gaps at the back.

Cole Stockton to score anytime

Cole Stockton started from where he left off last season, as he scored a brilliant brace against Ipswich Town in the opening match. After his 13 goal haul last season, Stockton remains a crucial player for Morecambe. His ability to pounce on opposition mistakes and skill on the ball is likely to help him grab a goal at any time.

Blackburn vs Morecambe: Preview of the EFL Cup Game

Blackburn

The EFL Cup has provided decent memory for Blackburn in recent years with the team managing to get past the first round with relative comfort in recent years. A positive start has provided Blackburn with Blackburn boss Tony Mowbray will only be without Bradley Dack for this match. After narrowly missing out on the promotion last season, Blackburn’s efforts will also be focused on the upcoming league game against Nottingham Forest.

Morecambe

Morecambe’s biggest objective this season will be to stay in League One after having achieved an unlikely promotion. The absence of Derek Adams in the dugout is a major blow and coach Stephen Robinson has not particularly helped himself after the manner of the draw in the opening game against Ipswich. Robinson has a fully fit squad for this match.
