If it finishes like this would be 3rd with 4 points off Bournemouth in second...

Since the Fulham hammering we've been on a very good run. If we keep Brereton Diaz in January and we don't lose key guys to injury second half of the season, I reckon we can keep pushing for playoffs.

Beating the second in the table away, without conceding..... pretty darn neat.

We have been doing this all without JRC or Dack this whole season. Dack is on his way back next month, and JRC is in injury limbo.

Pears, for a backup, did amazing tonight. Backline did awesome, Nyambe getting subbed off is par for the course. Seeing Gallagher again is 50/50 for me, but adds a depth piece up top.

Great win against a promotion contender, would love to see the run continue.

Wow! Was not expecting that :D best away support I've personally ever seen from Rovers, and that energy was matched by the players.

Some ratings:

Pears - 10 (MOTM): Don't envy Tony having to pick between him and Kaminski next weekend. Superb stops throughout.
Nyambe - 7: Clearly had been told not to make his usual driving runs down the right, and in hindsight was the right call.
Lenihan - 8: Good leadership, always talking, made some odd runs into midfield which didn't quite work out :lol:
Van Hecke - 10: The most committed out of all the defenders, constantly making well timed blocks and of course scored the bullet header.
Wharton - 8: Looks right at home in a back 3.
Pickering - 7: Solid, but possibly like Nyambe was told to stay back so didn't offer much going forward.
Travis - 8: Great scrapping in midfield as always, didn't quite get his head up to make key passes on a few occasions.
Rothwell - 9: So so good at dribbling and driving attacks and proved it again today. Great set pieces too.
Bucko - 9: Won countless tackles high up the pitch and always made the right decision on the ball. Slotted in well for Nyambe.
Khadra - 7: Was great on the ball, but had no support due to Nyambe and Travis staying back behind him.
BBD :mygod: - 8: Possibly the greatest player to ever live, he looked like (and probably did) run a marathon today. Had two big chances which he couldn't take on this occasion, but his runs on and off the ball were excellent.

Gallagher - 8: I've criticised him in the past, but he was exactly what we needed off the bench today. Lots of pressing & won his headers and 50/50s which took the pressure off the defence.
Ayala - 7: Kept things calm at the end.
Johnson - 7: Played false 9 which was err weird to say the least. But considering he's gone from CB to CF he put in a shift.

I would really like not to see Johnson so high up the pitch anymore. He offered absolutely nothing other than fresh legs (which burned out in 10 minutes).

My biggest concern is Clarkson. He clearly doesn't have much of a path forward into the 11, and I think there's a reason to that. Question would be what is his role going forward into the second half of the season? Dack is on his way back, which pushes him further down, and who is getting dropped in his place?

Just epic. Given our form today felt like a free hit in that we weren't expected to win but we could go there in good form and see what happens. Wow.

7 wins in 9, feels like something is happening this season.

What's going on this season? :hyper:

We should lose 7-0 to Fulham more often
