... building a plank the likes of which has never been seen before. There have been planks built before but not to the scale of this. This plank will be yuuuuuge. I've spoken to many plank people and they assure me this plank will be more plankier than any plank before. There will be so much plank in this plank. And once this plank is built, people will be able to walk right off it, right off it, folks, into China. Because the Chinese build great planks. Their planks are better than our planks. I've seen the Chinese planks and they are so much more plankier than our planks. And that's how we'll make pirates great again.

Are you sure they are buccaneers and not pirates?

I have a good feeling about today, hopefully another quick start and an early goal. We play so much more expansive and confident after the early goal.

Going 3-0 Rovers, Dack, Nuttall and Antonssen.

Also, Whittingham is starting on the wing in place of Bennett, his favoured position I believe. Will be interesting to see how he does.

Sounds like we have not turned up today. Need to scrap a win. Maybe get some fresh legs on early.

Half time, uneventful first half. Whittingham is my main concern right now, as he is playing not like a true winger, rather a right midfielder. We don't have much attacking bite without Bennett, so would love to see him come on sometime today.

The disallowed goal was a good move, and its a warning to Blackburn that they need to keep marking and moving. Bristol Rovers have been pretty effective defensively, getting near 10 men behind the ball at times.

Not sure what magic will be needed to get the goal, but I suppose it will be magic when the time comes.

Down now, 1-0, Bristol get a good goal outside the box. Was bound to happen with Whittingham on the right wing.

Mulgrew, what a player!

I fully expect Graham to get the winner today.
