Great win that, especially considering we didn’t have 3 out of our 4 first choice defenders!

Up the football league we go :hyper:

Typical Rovers display, great half countered by a bad half. Difference being we held on to the 3 points.

Felt like Johnson was not doing too great all match, a lot of misplace passes. But I guess when you're not playing much, this happens. And I still want to fire Poveda into the sun.

Buckley ripping a hole in his shorts was definitely moment of the match.

And this,Thor, shows what a diference it makes to have you doing the match threads. The inclusion of corned beef was a stroke of genius and clearly gave the players a lift.

Great win and I know we seem to make life difficult and nearly throw away another 2 goal lead but we got over the line.

Got to look at the context overall, average starting age of our XI was under 23 I think and you've got one of our better midfielders at RB, a youngster on loan at CB and Edun who is new to the club and this level. Could easily have been 3/4 up at half time and then Derby were always going to react.

Take the pressure of Wednesday now as well, we can just give it a go against Fulham and see if we can cause an upset.
