Finding themselves with an immediate return back to the Championship from League One, Blackburn Rovers were able to assure stability before reaching fourteenth in the table.
Other teams promoted from League 1 struggled to reach similar heights, both embroiled in a relegation battle during several moments in the season, but Blackburn Rovers overachieved, leaving space to do even more in the second term back in the Championship.
Fans of the club were mostly behind Tony Mowbray since day one but there were some that doubted his methods in charge of the club. He's shown how capable he is, making it an easier decision to keep him at the helm into next season, with safety from relegation once again being the number one priority.
Between striker Danny Graham, midfielder Bradley Dack and defender Charlie Mulgrew, goals have come from every possible playing position. Danny Graham achieved fifteen goals and three assists to play as their crucial star striker, Bradley Dack was the most influential player in the team with fourteen goals and seven assists to his name, and Charlie Mulgrey scored ten goals, which was impressive with the former Celtic player primarily playing within the back four.
Next season is likely to result in more of the same from Blackburn Rovers, or an unforeseen turn of events where they end up jostling for survival. As always, Sky Bet are prepared months in advance, this time providing odds that predict how Tony Mowbray's men could fare.
What is expected of Blackburn Rovers in the next Championship campaign?
Every team currently in the Championship is given a price to win the league next season, with Wigan Athletic handed the largest price at odds of 40/1. The recent relegation from the Premier League puts Fulham as favourite to make an immediate return to the top tier, priced at 8/1, followed closely by underachieving Stoke City at 9/1.
They're beaten by the price given to Wigan Athletic, but Blackburn Rovers are the second largest price, given odds of 28/1 to win the Sky Bet Championship next season. As for Blackburn Rovers only finding promotion without the pressure of finishing first in the 2019/20 Championship season, odds of 7/1 are awarded to the side, which is extremely short considering how likely they were to be relegated to League 1 before the current season started.
Fans of Blackburn Rovers will be prone to looking away now, as we delve into the pricing for their potential relegation to League 1. It's assumed that all newly-promoted teams will be handed the shortest price to find relegation back to the league below, but it's currently Blackburn that find themselves with the smallest odds, judged at 4/1 to go down.
The price is far shorter than any other, with Brentford then handed a 10/1 price, and Sheffield Wednesday, who've done well since Steve Bruce took charge, given odds of 12/1 to be relegated. Huddersfield Town are only just returning to the Championship, but they're as short as 14/1 to go down once again. It's a similar situation for Fulham, who are priced at 16/1 to find a second successive relegation.
