Rovers won this game the last time they played at the city ground in the championship. After a marvellous performance versus Derby confidence should be better. A Brereton goal would be ironic choosing to open his account against his former employers. Rovers may have done Derby a real blow given there major investment in the pursuit of promotion. They still have a chance but if they don't make it they may face FFP restrictions next season. Forest are eight points off a play off place and after the defeat to Sheff Wednesday mid week they need to beat Rovers. Hopefully Rovers can finish the season on a high. Mowbray should pick the same team that started against Derby. Would still like to see Chapman instead of Conway but it was a good team effort mid week so they all deserve to start.

Conway is doubtful for this match, according to Mowbray. It would be a breath of fresh air if Chapman were to start. Also, if Davenport can get in the 18, that would be massive too.

Mulgrew should be back, but if everyone if fit it's seems sensible to keep that same starting XI.

We should have some confidence back and no pressure on us to do anything so can just go there and perform and see what happens.

If everyone is fit from Tuesday night, then the same team starts...simple! I don’t want to see any tinkering Tony!

Even though Rovers have 50 points i still would like a few more just to be certain. With only a handful of games left you can bet the odd surprising result will happen to the benefit of clubs threatened with relegation. How about Rotherham to beat Stoke at the Bet 365 Stadium.

I’m looking forward to this game; we took the kids & their spouses on a cruise the last two matches.

I was shocked (pleasantly) by the result vs Derby. The best Rovers have played, certainly, since January, maybe the whole season.

Hopefully our 11 are the same, barring injury.

Joe Rothwell, take a bow!!! What a beautiful goal! That's the types of goals we needed from midfield, absolute text book top right corner.

Half-time, Rovers up 1-0. Solid showing so far, Bell is being attacked down the left big time, but he is able to take care of some it.

Joe Rothwell, wow. If Rovers didn't put up the goals of the season already, that one was an instant contender. Those darting forward runs from midfield is the thing we have been missing.

Corry Evans, wow. How the hell does he still get to find a way in the starting line up?

Bit harsh, I can’t see exactly what Evans has done wrong apart from not be as fast as Reed. He’s the more accomplished player out of him and Smallwood, so when Reed is unfit he’s the obvious choice?

Afraid the two goal advantage wouldn’t last long

Armstrong off by a yard but a beautiful left footed shot, curling for the bottom left corner.
