Derby County (A) - Sunday 8th March [3pm KO]

Recommended Posts

Not saying anything new ..but again ..last ten games someone comes from nowhere 

As its been quoted on here that Rovers don't wanna/cant  secure at top six position(possibly only sixth now) ..theres another five or six teams doing exactly the same.

We aint on own ..

That would only be a true statement if we were in the playoff positions right now. It's Fulham, Forest, Brentford and Preston's to lose - and we need to be in a position to potentially gain from their slip ups.

Exactly ..five or six teams doing their best not to break into the top six .

one team will click ..hopefully us ..but the longer the opportunity is there the better.

Absolutely.

We are the form team from fifth to tenth.

It's now a 10 game season.

It's now down to bottle - who really wants it.

It's ours to lose.

It is absolutely not ours to lose I’m afraid.

It’s a ten game season and we are just below midtable in a seven team division and need to finish in the top two. We are three points behind. We need other teams to do us favours.

If results go our way tomorrow we could do with winning this one, if results don’t go our way tomorrow, we could do with winning this one.... 2-1 Rovers Armstrong and then Johnson to score the winner against his former team 👍🏻

Don’t rise to it. The bloke has the best bait in the business.

Yes and we really need to go for wins. A draw tomorrow, under normal circumstances would be decent but the dropping of two points could have a real adverse effect. Mowbray needs to be bold in his team selection and tactics, get us on the front foot and go for it. Under those circumstances I think most would accept the gamble to a degree but going there and not having a go would lead to criticism.

Spot on. Draws are no good. If we don’t go up I hope it’s because we went for it and fell short and not because caution held us back. I want to know we did everything we could from this point

Well Preston’s wheels have fallen off! 6th is up for grabs now 

Win tomorrow and we enter the top 6 for the first time since 1932

Been following today's matches and this is our chance to get into the top six tomorrow. Hopefully we can get through the game without Lenihan and then have our first choice back four to see out the season

Pressure is definitely on now. Let’s hope that Derby feel that they have little to play for and Rovers finish them off early...🤞

Feels huger than huge, top 6 beckons and also with Bristol City up next a win takes us above them.

If they come to Ewood above us they may be more content with a draw so the result tomorrow will have a bearing on that as well

Derby win tomorrow and they’ll fancy making it with a late surge.

Christ this is such a huge game.

Just managing to get in the actual top 6 could really make the players believe and drive them on in the final stretch of the season 

No more half arsed draws chaps let's do this!

They were terrible at Ewood but I guess the granny shaggers arrival has improved them. 

They've only lost twice all season at home  mind, an easy game this is not 😳

I'd be more confident if Darragh was playing bit no point crying about that.

A nervy 2-1 win.....

Good point, and content for a point means shutting up shop, something which we frequently fail to overcome. If they come for a win they'll be more expansive and open to getting buttfucked by Arma and Rothwell's pace.

The weird thing is a draw would be ground made in the top 6 but would feel like a missed chance just like the last couple of games.

Watch it be a draw now!

Either way it would be superb if we can keep it civil on here tomorrow we are all on the same team

There seems to be a fair few on the Derby forums thinking the play offs are still a possibility for them....
