We already have a hero, and he is a great hero. So great in fact that I have never seen him be so great to the likes I have never seen before. His greatness, it is grates other teams. They ask him, "how can you be so great and not be a Geat?" The response he gives them is great, and they wonder how to be great without being a Geat, and that is how Alan Irvine will Make Geats Great Again!

Yeah, if we could get a point today, I think that would be a great result.

So looking at the current top 10's fortunes today...

1. Shrewsbury - Drew against Blackburn a team below them
2. Peterborough - Won against Wigan and overtook them
3. Bradford - Won against Northampton a team below them
4. Wigan - Lost against Peterborough and dropped below them
5. Shorp - Won against Portsmouth a team below them
6. Blackpool - Lost against Bristol Rovers, a team below them
7. Charlton - Drew against bury a team below them
8. Rotherham - Won against Oldham, a team below them
9. Blackburn - Drew against Shrewsbury, a team above us
10. Fleetwood - Lost against Southend, a team below them

It looks wide open really.

Agreed. Nothing is predictable in this league, apparently.

Not quite the taming of the shrew but a good point.

Just need to sort out our rancid home form.

Looks like the international break a few weeks ago has paid off for us. We were meant to play Fleetwood who at the time had started the season well. Now though not so good. As for Rovers I thought we would be better off than being ten points behind the leaders at this point of the season but on today's showing we are a match for the best performing club in the league at the moment. Three silly defeats has cost us but the season is a marathon and not a sprint. Rovers have shown we have a decent squad capable of getting results when not at full strength. Before the game i asked for Chapman and Dack to step up and own the game. They had a big say in getting Rovers level and when you are one down with the clock against you you look to players like these to get what Rovers deserved today.

Both sides seemed ineffective during the game. Both sides got a lucky goal, so a point each is a good result in our position.

This match showed what Dack can do when he pushes toward the middle, Chapman on the wing, and Whittingham's ability to make precision passes on the ground. I am not sure what the answer is to consistency, but it seems like Rovers are starting to rally.
