Would be nice to keep stringing these wins together.

With 9 pts from our last 12, I have reasonably high expectations. We are fairly healthy, but on the road battling a resurgent Stoke squad, with a new manager.

Tony should start the same squad as the one we played vs Brentford. That oughta do it.

Was nice to see Mowbray praise Rothwell in the LT after the Brentford. Well deserved.

It was good to see Brereton come on too. I'd be tempted to stick with the same side but I don't think he likes to play Evans in back to back games a few days apart. Also whether he keeps Bennett out of the side again. Nyambe starting was very much tactical for Brentford.

We were excellent last season at Stoke 0-3 at home time. More of that today would be great.

My biggest gripe on Evans is he’s prone to yellow cards.

Maybe the rest of the season gives Mowbray a good opportunity to evaluate these young strikers.

Btw, I noticed Joe Nuttall scores his 3rd of the season for Blackpool. I wish him well there, I liked his stuff in our League 1 season, but I suppose that’s where he needs to be.

Right call to keep the same side. Fancy Rothwell to get a goal.

Only concern would be Evans and his energy levels.

Rovers are due a draw, so I'm predicting 2-2.

Brentford, 5-0 over Luton?! Beating them may have been our coup of the season.
