Reading that, I'd be well annoyed if I was Feeney. His run from our half to feed Emnes was probably his greatest contribution in a Rovers shirt... and Simon Smith credited Akpan :lol: :doh:

I guess there's no other way.

We could get very cheesy with these puns.

Simon Smith really has written some utter toss this season. Cryer was okay and I quite liked Wheelock, but the quality of what's been written this season is pretty dire.

That said it would be a pretty bitter pill to swallow if we don't take something out of this game, and really we should be winning it. Rotherham has had 4 wins all season, conceded 67 and have only kept a clean sheet twice. I think we've got too much going forward to not get some points.

Coyle under pressure to leave if we lose. Rovers relegation fears ease if we win. This has draw written all over it.

Really need and want a win. I will be angry if Rovers draw, but if they lose, I will lose any confidence that has been building. I would easily categorize this as a must win game, along with upcoming Burton.

A win is important mainly to keep confidence up but also because of what is likely to happen elsewhere. I fully expect Burton to lose at Brighton, Bristol to lose at Derby and I can't see QPR beating Huddersfield. I know we shouldn't be relying on what happens elsewhere and I'm glad Coyle has said that this week, but psychologically it would be a big boost ahead of a very tough game away at Sheff Wed on Tuesday.

Sounds like Greer might be out but Williams will be back and Coyle has talked about being positive again. Guessing we'll line up something like:

----------------Steele
Nyambe Lenihan Mulgrew Williams
--Feeney Bennett Lowe Conway
---------Graham Gallagher
