Everyone complaining about the cold. Meanwhile, I am enjoying the nice sunny Mississippi.

Biggest game of the season so far and a good test. We're more than capable of winning but Wigan are very much on a par with us in terms of quality in this division.

A win would put a lot of pressure onto the teams below us and be a big step towards automatic promotion.

If we win today they will never catch us up. If we don't it's back in the melting pot.

I’m going to call it and say whoever loses today will finish top, because they’ll have something to prove over the closing games of the season.

Great goal, superb counter attack, awesome tackle by Lenihan and then great strength and pass from Dack, and a lovely finish by Armstrong with a lot to do.

More magic from Dack amd a very calm finish by Bennett.

Definitely a foul though, oops....

Thought the second really was a foul but watching it back they effectively foul each other and the ref let's it play on so it was just about okay.

We've looked really lively in the final third :hyper:

It appears to be a fairly physical match; I don’t get a live video feed, but the number of fouls (17) says it all.

Will Nuttall, Antonsson & Payne be difference-makers? Each have contributed big at various times this season.

16,142 at Ewood today, biggest draw this season.
