Blackburn v Charlton Sat 16-12 2017

It will be great to see Rovers continue the winning streak, goals have come rather easily. The Crewe match looked like not a whole lot of effort was put in, but that was to be expected. Should be interesting to see who gets a run out there in midfield, if Evans is ready to go or if Tomlinson gets another chance at starting.

Won't be easy today but we're in fine form. Charlton are a good side and I've always thought quite highly of Karl Robinson as a manager. I'm sure we lost to his MK Dons in the cup a few seasons back too.

But we have got Dack in attack :hyper:

This winning streak should have the fans pumped, & perhaps a bigger turnout than the typical 10,500. Oughta be fun!

Leon Best recently earned a 2 month deal with Charlton which should put him into the frame for their game against us.
Hope he starts then :D
:paranoid:
He didn't, but... 8-)

I feel like they needed to play You're the Best! from Karate Kid at that moment.

Half time, Rovers up 1-0. Beginning of the half looked shaky as there was no difference between the sides. As it went on, Rovers definitely asserted some dominance. I think Derrick Williams is having a pretty good game, although both attempts were not on target, his positioning is on point today. Smallwood is connecting passes really well today, and Raya had a really good save with an open shot on goal. Just need to put a couple more goals on the board and we can call this another comfortable win.

Charlton is definitely up to the task. They have us in time of possession, shots on goal, etc. It's going to be a battle the last 10 minutes or so
