I will settle for a draw, regardless if we are leading at some point in the match.

What if we're 3-0 up after 89 minutes?

Isn't that just about where we need to be to get a draw?

I might be a little perturbed, but not outraged.

Would be great if we can get something out of this match as it's Leeds away after :|

I dunno, but a new poll option has arisen... Igor Tudro. I totally forgot about anything else with this revelation.

Back to realty: Rovers shock the Tony haters, by winning this one, and they also get a stray point at Elland Road (Shades of three seasons ago, when relegation-bound Rovers swept league champs Magpies)

Slightly better news on the injuries front (it couldn't get much worse) Lewis Holtby maybe back for the Sheffield Wednesday game. Samuel and Brereton are back on th grass accroding to Tony Mowbray and need a run out in the development squad before being considered. Speaking of which Harry Chapman scored again for the U23s. Mowbray has been critical of HC telling him to step up his game if he wants to progress. i think he has done that and deserves a chance even if its from the subs bench. After all there are plenty other first teamers who need to step up too and they just walk into the team.

I want to see Harry in the first team, he has been tearing up the U23 scene. Give the lad a shot

Chapman was excellent off the bench last season. If he's on song and with Arma buzzing we'd have two cracking attacking wingers.

Looking at our starters...
Walton
Nyambe, adarabioyo, Williams, Bennett
Travis, Downing, Holtby, Dack
Armstrong, Gallagher
For those available, I would say this is our strongest 11.
Armstrong & Gallagher, we need to see something out of these two today.

Bit drab from both sides right now. Gallagher with the best chance so far for Rovers. A lot of centreback passing going on right now, not terribly convinced from Nyambe centrally. Just need more of the ball pushed up and played amongst the playmakers.

You know who's not even made their bench? Rhodes. They've clearly broken him.

I don’t understand that, unless he’s hurt . He scores 26 or so in the Championship in 2013, he doesn’t play at all now.
