If Shrewsbury fail to win we're also as good as promoted :hyper:

So basically a win and we’re promoted, a draw and a Shrewsbury draw or loss and we’re promoted. Lose and Shrewsbury lose, we’re promoted. So could well be a promotion party tomorrow night! So glad I’m there for this one!

The club nickname is the “Vikings” so perhaps so! Not a fan of the badge myself but it’s been around for a while!

Given the 20+ goal difference we have we could also lose and Shrewsbury draw and it's effectively still over.

Shrewsbury are not going to catch Rovers and will be lucky to get promotion via the play offs. Both Rotherham and Charlton are playing better.

Unfortunately, we still need to play the match. Odds are heavily in our favo(u)r, so it's easy to say we are promoted.

Either way, I expect a win and Celebration to play from Kool and the Gang.

Update, I will be at work and unable to watch or check the match. I am highly saddened by my work arrangement.

Replay has got to be better than the first game... our worst loss of the season.

Hope we can celebrate this time tomorrow.

Then, its all fretting over what happens next year in the Championship, ARGH! :roll: (can’t we just invoke the 24 hour rule for this one?!)

Is this played at Ewood & what band recorded it?

When I first became a fan 5-6 years ago, I found this song, & wondered how official/unofficial it was.
