I was too nervous to even post during that injury time!

So, we can sweep Newcastle & Derby, but not the catfish of the Championship? Crazy

Great result that, especially with Bristol City failing to get anything out of Villa.
Definite 3 points gained.
IF we can win that game in hand, and Wolves' rescheduled game vs Huddersfield goes our way too, the table will be looking much better.

Really important step forward tonight. Still firmly believe we'll be okay.

Absolutely.

Looking back at February, Rovers had 6 fixtures, got 6 points at home, and 2 points in three roadies. So, 8 points in 6 games. Not bad, but they will need to do better. You know what? I'm not going full-blown sunshine pumper, but I think they will do better. Mowbray isn't a miracle worker, but he is a sound, fundamentals guy, that preaches defense. Today was mighty.

Rovers need to make their noise in March; especially, on my birthday. A win is all I want on my BD!

Was great watching Bristol drop 6 points! :hyper: ahem.

Good set of results, like how Mowbray is setting up the team.

Didn't look to dissimilar to Coyle :shrug:

Massive 3 points. Was very ugly at times but the result was the big thing tonight. Clean sheet will be great for the confidence at the back.

Positives;

Result
Clean sheet
Nyambe - looks a great prospect
Fans - no negativity tonight. Fully behind the team

Negatives;

Steeles kicking. He'd make a great rugby player with the amount of times he finds touch....

Roll on Wigan!!!

I don't recall Coyle starting Nyambe, or playing both Gallagher and Emnes if Graham was available up top.

And whilst Coyle always seemd to want to put Mulgrew in midfield I still think we need him at centre back more.

Gaz I think there was probably a more obvious difference against Burton. Mowbray was quite clear that this game wasn't about the performance or going to be much of a spectacle but simply about getting 3 points.

I wasn't there but a lot players and fans on twitter commenting on the fans the supportive atmosphere. And the fact that the players showed a determination to win.

I don't think you can say the players didn't care under Coyle but he was a divisive character with the fans so if Mowbray can elevate the players and unite the fans that alone will go a long way. Bad luck seemed to just come with Coyle too so if Mowbray changes our fortunes then that's also a bonus.

Would be interested to know how it was?

Superb 3 points. Wait for someone to dispute that :hyper:
Bristol losing is a massive bonus. Now let's smash Wigan. Drag as many clubs into this fight as possible.
