Just need to keep adding goals so some youngsters can some time come 2nd half.

With two goals, I would have expected Conway to have at least 1 assist, but not. We're getting help from unlikely sources today!

Two shots, two goals. Not a bad way to go to HT.

Apparently, Bennett's was a worldie. Can't wait to see that at the end of the highlights!

Would be nice to see a substitution and get Mahoney or another youngster on the pitch

An absolutely stunning goal from Bennett but as for the rest....

2-0 against a league 2 side with 10 ten, the lack of ambition and willingness to get more goals was so disappointing. Coyle could have tried to make a statement today and get some supporters on side, but it was so frustrating to watch. Too many sideways and backward passes against a very poor Blackpool side. Needless to say Lowe was the main culprit. Lowe and Akpan has got to be the worse midfield pairing I've seen in my team as a rovers fan.

I understand we won and we're in the hat for the next round, but I'm just saying how I so it.
