Looking to get the train to the Blackburn match. Nearest stations to me are Burton and Tamworth, the cheapest I can find is £50 from Burton, is that about the right price or does anyone know if I could find cheaper, have only looked at the trainline so far. Thanks

.....last Saturday before Christmas so busy on the trains, you can do multiple splits and changes.

Burton > Stoke
Stoke > Manchester
Manchester > Blackburn ....could do this for just under £43

Alternatively try splits to Preston , the Preston to Blackburn return is only £6.00, so find a cheap way of getting to Preston.

Might not be any good but we used to get to Preston (lad lives up there and pre pandemic) for about £36 (changing once at Crewe). As has been said cheap then to Blacburn return, need to book well in advance for that price though.
