Enzo Maresca’s side face Rovers on Friday 18 September at the Leyland County Ground, with kick-off at 19:00 (UK).
The live stream will be available to watch from 18:40 (UK).
Friday evening’s game pitches last season’s eighth place, City, against the Lancashire side who finished one spot below us in the Premier League 2 table.
Whilst Blackburn are yet to play in 2020/21, the EDS have made a promising start to the campaign, having recorded a fine 3-0 win over Mansfield Town in the Leasing.Com Trophy, before sharing the points in a 3-3 draw with Derby County in our league opener.
