Blackburn Rovers v Derby County

Derby haven't won a match since the end of January, can we extend that streak?

Well we can't brag about many wins over Derby, but at least we won our last one against them.

Mowbray gets a point in his first game at Ewood. Then we can have another argument how a point isn't all that helpful to our staying In the Championship next season. ;)

Rovers beat them at theirs, and have had an extra days rest.

a loss would be disappointing, a wouldn't hate a draw and a win would be ace. Hoban and Elliot Ward both played 90 mins for the under 23's.

I hope for the best!

Man I thought Gibbon jumping around did it. Maybe the atmospheric chart will be good enough for us to win ,12 more to go.

Feels like another draw to me, regardless of the kestrel/roman sunshine. Which will then lead to an in depth discussion on the nature of said point no doubt. Something to look forward to there!

But does that mean we'll gain 3 points or just not drop any? :yeahright:

Rovers to win 3 - 1. I'm sure a few will be disgruntled by that score.

I can see Derby maybe scoring a couple, they are a decent team when they want to be. Hopefully Tony's first home game will give Rovers and the fans a bit of a boost. If we're going to win, my gut feeling says it'll be 3-2 or 2-1

You're right, I'm not looking forward to it really.

As my per my previous posts from the game back in September, I live in the Derby area and know a lot of Rams fans, so I get a bit of an insight into how they are feeling etc.

General consensus is that Mclaren had his usual upturn when arriving back in the Autumn and were well settled in the playoff positions. But they appear to have a problem when it gets to the meat and drink part of the season after Christmas. So no surprise to the fans that they are on this bad run.

Most round here think tonights game is a chance to break the run and exact some revenge for the home loss, however they could well be without captain Keogh and possibly his defensive partner Shackell. Apart from that they have a pretty much full team, with Bent likely to lead the line. Mclaren was at Burton last Friday and said he was impressed with Rovers first half and is surprised at our position in the league!

All in all we need to get on the front foot tonight and most importantly score first. If we do then hopefully it will demoralise them enough for us to grab a second goal, something we have failed to to do all season.

Fingers crossed from behind the sofa.
