Not sure if there is a taker for this, so I will get the ball rolling.  P

Must win if we have any aspirations of knocking around the play-offs. 

From last weekend the following players were carrying knocks -Lenihan, Dack, Graham, Travis and Evans. Does anyone have an update on this? We could do with them being fit, although perhaps a shake up wouldn't be the worst call. 

Not an easy team to pick this week, with a couple of main bones of contention. Bennett or Nyambe, Mulgrew or Rodwell. 

                       Raya

Nyambe Lenihan(c) Rodwell Bell

               Travis  Reed

    Rothwell Dack Armstrong

                  Brereton 

Come on Ben, make a name for yourself

Likewise, but will he? Has it been confirmed if Nyambe was injured, or just left out of the squad due to missing out? Bit harsh if so 



Mowbray said after the Hull game that it was his decision not to put Nyambe in the squad, so I would assume that it was the same on Saturday.

Their match thread is an interesting read.

Poster Moments of Pleasure confirms what we already knew - southerners just aren’t football people.

Very similar layout to this forum. Do ye remember Oxfords last year? You needed sunglasses to look at it 

Anyway, do they not just have a regular match thread? Pages of discussion about who is going to the game, but little discussion of the actual game

Team selection will depend whether Graham, Travis, and Evans are fit.

I think Travis will fit. Graham fit enough for Bench. 

My team is

                         Raya

Nyambe Rodwell Mulgrew Bell

                   Reed Travis

Armstrong      Dack       Bennett

                        Brereton

Subs:- Luetwiler Williams Smallwood Rothwell Conway Graham Nuttall

Raya

Nyambe Rodwell Mulgrew Williams

Travis Evans

Reed Dack Armstrong

Graham

Plenty of ifs and buts with that team.

If Evans is injured, Smallwood in.

If Travis is injured, Bennett in wide with Reed inside.

If either of the front 2 is injured, Rothwell wide, Armstrong moved inside.

Hopefully at least one of them are fit, especially with Chapman out.

The immutable law of the ex. Palmer will score, there's no doubt about that.

Travis's poor showing at Brentford will see the inevitable return of Smallwood. Bennett's poor showing at Brentford will see him retain his place somewhere.

Hoping for a bounce-back but Brizzle are a decent side with a good manager and he will have noted how Brentford took our soft defence apart.

Rovers 1 City 2

Surely its illogical to leave out our (IMO) best player of the season, someone who scored again last week, in such an important game for a player yet to score for us?

But we have 3 games in 9 days. And Graham was injured on Saturday. He has to be 100% fit to start. The last thing we need is he out for month or 2 by rushing him to play

I said if he is fit. He has played 3 games in 9 games before and describes himself as being as fit as hes been at Rovers.

If he isnt fit id play Rothwell left and Armstrong with Dack.
