With Barnsley and Millwall at home back to back would be great to get a couple of wins as it's then Brentford, Bristol City and Norwich after that. Not that we need to fear anyone in this league.

JRC out for 10 weeks which is a real shame but Elliot should be okay for this and Johnson back from suspension.

I just remembered Rovers have a game in a few hours.
JR-C out? Unreal, I’ve followed sports for 50 years, I don’t think I ever remember any team in any sport losing half their roster, for any amount of time, over the first quarter of the season.

That’s true, I do love a good tandoori.

Dallas Cowboys this season... but they werent going to be any good, even if Prescott didn’t get hurt.

I can say this here: JONES OUT

We've not really got going yet. Barnsley coming forward in numbers.

Having the league’s top scorer really does come in handy

Wow, the fact we're up 1-0 at half is a relief. Makes Barnsley chase the game in the second half. They have such a great press and formation that it does really well to disrupt Rovers gameplan. It's those brief moments where Rovers have the ball that really shine the brilliance. Nyambe with the assist and starting to show improvement on end product.

At this point, I'm not sure if a Dolan would be good in this match. Really need someone that can create space with passing, and he doesn't really do it. Gallagher wouldn't be bad through the center or the wing, where we can lump it to him and he can try to win a header down to Armstrong or someone in midfield.
