Well a full house on the Mowbray bingo. A textbook Mowbray performance with just about every ingredient on display today.  - Bright(ish) start to the game for the first 10-15 minutes but alas no

It was always going to be tough against a side like Doncaster. We did well to stay in it for as long as we did and make a contest of it. Donny have to be one of the favourites for this competitio

Beaten by a better coached and organised team, who played some nice stuff on the counter and thoroughly deserved their win.  The goalkeeper isn't good enough, terrible from Mowbray to spend money

Carter gone on loan.

Magloire can't play on as his loan deal at Hartlepool expires after their game on Saturday (sounds like they wanna loan him out again anyway)

Ayala, Williams, Wharton out. 

Looking thin on the ground for centre backs here. 

He might start an under 23 player but i can't seem him not playing Lenihan.

Feckin hell, we are playing Donny of League 1 who have been ravaged by Covid.

I expect to see Dack and Brereton start.

Unless Mowbray throws a complete wobbler and lines up with 4 dustbins across the back then it's a nailed on home banker.

Rovers' win is 13/18 and barring any Mowbray idiocy (I'll make that call when I see our line up at 2.00pm), I'll be placing £180 to win £130.  And before anyone questions my sanity, I made a bundle on Man City tonight who, after their Chelsea performance, were as high as 11/10 to win tonight - a licence to print money.

You're the only person I know who takes the bookies to the cleaners Mercer...💫

Mercers ran yesterday at Lingfield, I thought you might own a leg.  Decent each way 2nd at 10/1...

Dack & Travis In the 11 should insure we move on in the competition.

As a Texan latecomer to Blackburn Rovers fandom, I love the domestic Cups, but I’m much more concerned about fielding a quality club vs Stoke.

Even if Magloire was back by Saturday I'm pretty sure he couldn't play. Pretty sure he played vs Salford for Harrogate in the FA Cup.

As I once said to some lads from Southampton, "Why would you pick us? Are you off your rocker?!" As someone whose earliest Rovers memories were whilst sat on my Mum's shoulders, a few words I'd take friendly issue with:

1. Should. We all know *should*. We all know Rovers don't hang with *should*.

2. Cups. Cup*s*. This is not the League Cup. This is the FA Cup. Abide with Me. Stanley Matthews. Matching suits. Dave Whelan breaking his leg. The Crazy Gang. That episode of The Detectives. 1884-6 and all that. It's written into football folklore in a way the league just isn't.

Personally, I'd prefer Rovers to win the FA Cup than win another Premier League. Been there. Done that. Neither are going to happen any time soon but the magic of the cup is strong with this one.

Side note, if we don't loan a player in time, why on Earth would you loan out your last, fit defender in Carter? We must be close.

Anyone else tried to sign up for the fa player to watch the game? Tried several times to sign up and get this error 🤯.

Anyone know if they show it live on YouTube?

It did that when I tried linking it with Facebook or Twitter. When I signed 'normally', it worked fine.

Little symbols in the blue bar underneath the regular sign-in options. If I re-phrase: It took me 3 tries then lots of pratting around with multiple confirmations. The site seems a bit amateur.

Tried normal login and Facebook same error 🤯. Emailed them yesterday but still not heard back

Suspect we will see

Pears

Pike Lenihan Johnson Bell

Travis Davenport Dack

Brereton Butterworth Dolan

Pretty close to the team I'd like to see, although was Butterworth one of those isolating against Birmingham? Probably not going to be able to play if so.

Cheers. I'll give this a go. 

Sorry if I've missed it, but I'm assuming there's no iFollow for this one (free or otherwise) as there's not option for a video match pass. Presumably because iFollow is an EFL thing.

Edit: Worked perfectly for me doing it this way on my laptop. Thanks👍
