Mowbray will probably shuffle the pack again changing half the team. Rovers have been pretty toothless in the last three games and the defeat to Huddersfield was on the cards but i will settle for one loss in eight. I am a big fan of 4-4-2 and would like to see something on the lines of...
------------------------Walton----------------------------
Bennett-----Lenihan-------Tosin-------------Downing
Armstrong-----Davenport---Johnson-------Chapman
------------Gallagher---------Graham-------------------

On a transfer side issue Rovers are being linked with Gillingham left back Connor Ogilvie.

Other than Id prefer Rothwell and Travis to Johnson and Davenport I 'd go with Darth's team.

Both Graham and Gallagher are benched. Ben Brereton starts against his old team.

No Holtby or Nyambe in the 18. Guys in and out of the lineup. But everybody else has a lot of games in a short time period, too.

Forest did nothing to get themselves 3 goals. Need to get ourselves out of another little rut.

I f there is a positive it's the re-emergence of Chapman who sounded like he had an excellent game after he came on.

i have never agreed with Tony Mowbray regarding Harry Chapman and he more than anyone deserves a chance in the first team.
