Tied on matches with Shrews, they are only a point up. Have to keep winning and drawing games to look at automatic promotion. 14 more matches, would be lovely to see an unbeaten run to finish the season.

It would still give the fans a great boost to see us on top of the league if we win tomorrow, despite having played a game more than the Shrews and 3? more than Wigan.

Will finally get to see a live match this season all be it on the tele, but living 230+ miles away makes it difficult and I am useless when it comes to getting my bum to away games even though our away fans are superb.

Hoping to see a few goals from us tonight and a clean sheet would be nice. Also top would be great, both the others still have to win their games in hand.

I think there is a couple of us that have you beat by 3,000 or so odd miles. But 230 miles is a distance for sure.

I also hope that there are a couple goals for the good. We shut them out last time 3-0, great performance. Having Armstrong and Payne really help replace Chapman and Antonnsson. (The irony of it is they are all on loan)

Have to capitalise on Shrewsbury slipping to defeat against the increasingly impressive Rotherham! And we couldn't have a better game to do it on paper.

I'm really hopeful that tonight we show our dominance against one of the poorer sides in the division as well as boost our goal difference. The defence would hugely benefit from bagging a clean sheet too as we haven't had a shut out since late December despite good results.

With Lenihan back I really hope Mowbray doesn't start to tinker too much with formations at the back. We went to 3 at the back with Nyambe off injured at Portsmouth as well as in the second half against Oldham.

He has talked pre-game about managing Lenihan's return so I'd half expect him to remain on the bench and the usual back 4 starting, as I think Nyambe is a really important part of our forward play with his pace going forward and overlapping down the right.

Thor,
I am thinking about a fall, 2019 trip to England. Retirement is looking pretty exciting!

Of course, as would I.

But we are the highest scorers in the league playing the lowest scorers who are second bottom, although they are unbeaten in 5.

I hope Armstrong retains his place in the side as well as Payne and Dack as they're very potent going forward, if we play well tonight we'll cause them a lot of problems.

One of the strongest Rovers line ups I've seen this season

Take Evans off for Travis, Tomlinson, or Payne and that's even stronger.

Antonsson makes the bench over Conway, so should expect to see him later in the match I presume.

I am great with this lineup...if there’s a weak link it might be Evans
