Think we'll win tonight and I've never seen us lose at Reading which is a good omen, or I've just jinxed it.

I got to wondering last night how many goals have Rovers scored this season from outside the penalty area, other than set pieces? (thank you Charlie).
Travis won't shoot, Evans can't shoot and I wonder how our scoring 'record' compares with other clubs. Perhaps instead of blaming late goals Mowbray should have a look at the 'goal shyness' of our defenders. Having said that, the number of times Raya booted the ball to the Bristol goalkeeper on Saturday made me think he was having a go himself!
I do recollect Reed scoring a screamer, but that seems along long time ago.

Gave up a really soft goal, 1-0 to Reading.

First half pretty much up. Rovers have dominated possession but absolutely no creativity. Really need to bring on Dack or Graham to make something happen. I think taking off Evans is a must.

Left back has been a weakness all season. I'd ask Nyambe to play on the left.

This is such a frustrating watch. Reading are so poor and we should be winning this!

Dack & Graham will need to pull us out of the fire today.
