Tempting to rest a few players for this game. Dack although more than likely available had been an ever present in the team all season. He deserves a week off and Payne can fill in for him. Graham although scoring quite a few of late again could make way for Antonsson. There are several other options like Bell for Williams and Downing for either Mulgrew or Lenihan. Again i have doubts about Raya. His saving ability there is no doubt but he is very much like a vampire when it comes to crosses.
Agree with resting Graham for Wigan at home likewise Bell for Williams is like for like. If Dack isn't 100% post illness then again Payne is a very decent replacement and perhaps being Dack on later in the game. But I don't think we can afford to rest Mulgrew, not 100% sure on our full record when he doesn't play but it certainly seems as though we concede more and are less likely to win. Downing has had a slight dip in form and Lenihan is still getting fully up to speed.

It's an interesting test tonight as given the opposition it's going to be a similar test to those we have failed previously at home to Wimbledon and twice to Northampton. They're going to be tough, direct and want to make the game scrappy, sadly we've not managed to assert ourselves against opposition this season that effectively want to bring us down to a level of playing we're not actually that well equipped for.

If we’ve got some kind of bug in the camp then there’s no guarantee’s that it wont be hitting more of our players. I think we just have to play this one by ear.

Yes, it would be nice to take one over from the start, and be the boss for the duration.

If Rovers stay healthy down the backstretch of the schedule, I believe they will take care of business. Here's hoping they get this one played!

It did that up here earlier. Clear ground to totally snow covered in the space of 10 minutes, an hour or two later and the sun has melted it all again

Matches these days are often called off due to the state of thew terraces and surrounding areas, irrespective of the condition of the pitch.
Health and Safety and fear of the compensation culture often rules.

If Rovers win tonight will it put more pressure on Wigan to get something at Ewood this coming weekend. Worst thing that could happen for Wigan is to be nine points behind Rovers but with four games in hand. Wigan's league form of late has been poor. Two defeats and a narrow win against Rochdale. The FA Cup is definitely a distraction for them. Long may their cup run continue! :D
