If we can make another win here, regardless of the nature, it might help stave off the cries for sackage.

Dilemma for Mowbray - whether or not to change a winning team even if some of them aren't on their best form. I have a feeling that Danny might start,but who will play left back? Tosin has become quite a rock in the centre of defence, so perhaps Williams if fit will play full back. Rothwell deserves another start but Travis might find his place under challenge from Evans, Buckley, Downing,Johnson, Chapman or even Smallwood (remember him? )
And PLEASE play Armstrong on the wing,despite what he might think the lad is no centre forward.

The uncomfortable return of Raya :(

Walton having been fairly excellent for Wigan for 2 seasons has been a little bit below par for us with a few mistakes leading to goals.

Not too difficult to know one of Brentford's weaknesses. Play high balls into the box and put the keeper under pressure.

With a win tomorrow, we could move into the top half of the table. What would the ‘sackers’ say then?

Lol

It doesn’t matter the outcome of the game at the “other” site... I think Mowbray could get Blackburn promoted, they would still want him sacked. Oh well.

Reminds me of the whole time Arsene Wenger was in charge at Arsenal. Top 4 finishes weren't enough.

Rothwell has been excellent so far too.

Appears to be a good half by Rovers. Bees had majority of possession, but only got 3 shots. We made the most of ours.

Solid first half. Really showing some good composure with possession. I think there were times that were sketchy, giving Brentford an attempt or two that looked good. However, I think it's panned out as far as possession goes.

Would like to see Hotlby come on later for Armstrong, maybe Brereton come on and see where he's at. Buckley would also be a welcome player to see.

Benhrama with a fantastic free kick, hitting the upper 90 out of goal, close call.
