Live on Sky Sports, 12.30 kick off. Bookmakers offering a very generous 9-2 against Rovers winning.

It's clear that having a poll is an indication of intent to win.

Indeed! Nice poll options, btw... I’m salivating over those delectable crab cakes. :mygod: :mygod:

Gallagher & JR-C oughta be options on Saturday. Glad to get some guys fit.

Some big lads on the Brentford team, I'd play the same side except start with Danny and bring the fresh legs of Samuel on in the second half.

Three years in charge for Mowbray tomorrow. Pleased the club have stuck with him, and not submitted to the wishes of the more fickle amongst us. We're in far better shape for the stability that's brought.

Avoiding a defeat tomorrow would represent a very good day.

Not been this excited for a game in a while - play offs within our reach, but yet there’s still no real expectation for us to get there... So hopefully the lads just go out and play without any fear!

Hopefully we’ll have Danny or Dom Sam up front. Predicting Buckley will also start again so I’m hoping he isn’t too affected by the physical side of this game.

Forgot we had the early game, so I slept through the first 30 min. Great start!

We’re just about keeping up, but we can’t keep letting Benrahma have this space to shoot - Christian ‘The Wall’ Walton won’t be able to keep making saves forever :?

Some fantastic individual bits of defending here but I’d like a little bit more possession than to ease the pressure!

One things for sure, we shouldn't just try and park the bus for the next 45 minutes, that way leads to disaster more often than not. We need to try and get another somehow.
