That lineup is a nightmare.

7 defensive outfield players and gally upfront.

Johnson who turns like a tank and Travis who won’t be match fit.

Do well to get a point here.

Just shows how awful our squad depth is.

To be fair, our best results have come from having 7 defensive players.

Having said that, we’re getting beaten tonight. I’m making my peace with it now. A point will be a bonus. I hate this sport.

Be an unbelievable result if we win tonight because Jesus that lineup is poor. 50 quid on Boro at 7/4 I did yesterday is sounding even better now. Would love nothing more than my bet to lose though! Be one of the biggest results we’ve had in years if that lineup can pull off a win tonight.

Bradley Johnson could do a job in a defensive role tonight, just about, I think, but an issue I've noticed with him (and the management) is that he gallops forward to support attacks. I would hope that he stays put and shields, rather than get caught out upfield. Edun is going to need the support, I feel.

Shocked chapman isn’t on the bench. Khadra hobbles off after half an hour . What do we have ? Should of been on the bench tonight . It’s a poor do he’s down at leyland

Mowbray does not like him.

He’s stuck in the mud, he moves so slow I don’t think he can physically gallop mate 😂

Dreadfully negative line up. Playing for a point. If he was going like that, I'd have gone Davenport alongside Travis and Butterworth behind Khedra.

Edit: Chapman should also be in the squad. Mowbray cutting off his nose to spite his face.

A couple of hours ago I was looking forward to this as a tough test that we might just about come through and possibly get 3 points. Johnson in for Rothwell is just one blow too many and I'd be happy with a point now. Line up looks really poor, as does the squad depth.

I'm shocked Davenport isn't playing ahead of Johnson.

Rothwell for me is the most important player in our team. Makes it all happen. Sick that he isn't involved.

Injured?

Without him I've downgraded us from a 1-1 draw to a 1-0 defeat

On current form and with a weakened team I'd be amazed if we won this

Best we can hope for is Boro get a Red card early doors.

Those well known ref decisions that all go our way recently. 

Suppose we're due one. 

We're gonna need some slice of luck.

For all the Buckley fans, I have been in a few debates about him on here this season but I will say he has improved in my eyes so I'm not setting him up for a big fail here but some have him up there with Rothwell and BBD. Tonight is your night son, if there was ever a time to perform its tonight because someone needs to step up.

I’m no Mowbray defender but realistically he wasn’t going to do either was he? And Chapman wouldn’t have done zilch. Simply too many injuries.

What you are seeing here is the evaporation if our promotion dreams.  I know we will have players out but Mowbary is clueless on how to fill the gaps left by missing first teamers.  Fancy an easy Boro win tonight.
