Would be sweet and sour chicken if we keep the clean sheet streak in the league alive.

Feeling quite positive about this game. It felt like last season we performed better and good results against the better teams and certainly teams that come out and attack. I'd expect to see a similar approach to the Fulham game where we played very well with no reward. Feel like we've got to start taking chances sooner of later.

I'd be surprised if the team was much different from the below:

----------------Walton
Bennett Lenihan Williams Cunningham
-------------Travis Johnson
---Armstrong---Dack---Downing
---------------Gallagher

A splendidly marvelous strike from Harrison Reed earned Rovers a point last season in this fixture. Another point would do nicely. On a side issue some challenging remarks from Tony Mowbray directed at Harry Chapman in todays media. The message was its time to knuckle down and really give it all he has to gain a first team place and get his career moving forward. According to Tony Mowbray its a little boys fault who sits close to him during Rovers home games with his Harry Chapman Rovers shirt on and regularly asks where is Harry today?

I am elated at our results so far... I said after the Fulham loss, we needed to pick up at least 4 pts in the next 4, which point total we exceeded after two. Needless to say, another point & a third straight clean-sheet at Cardiff was totally unexpected.

I’ve figured out I don’t have great predictive powers, so I won’t even try today. :lol: just everybody stay healthy

25 seconds, not a bad start. Dangerous though if they start to get complacent, another before half time would be good.

Where was the breakdown?

So now the lads will scramble, work their butts off, to get a point today.

2. 1 WBA. They are getting down out left side too easily. Armstrong has zero interest in defending.
