Who is Eastham? I thought it was between Hilton and Fisher.

Good point, hadn't noticed he was the bench option, weird. Jordan Eastham. As far as I'm aware, third choice youth goalie. I dunno if Fisher's loan made him ineligible...and maybe there's something wrong with Hilton like an injury.

It may seem obvious but the first goal is absolutely vital tonight. If we get it we could win quite comfortably because they’ll have to push on and we can utilise Arma. If they get it they will gain confidence and go from strength to strength. 
 

On the basis that we often play well when there’s nothing at stake I’m gonna go for a 1-4 Rovers victory.

Under-18 goalkeeper.  I think Fisher is ineligible because of various loans and Hilton may be on furlough or injured.

This is crazy.

A game when he could be forgiven for experimentation, Mowbray throws on the most attacking XI he can with all players having obvious roles to play.

Luton because of Wigan might be tempted to play it cagey for a draw.

It's the same team as last game!

But we extended contracts for Hart and Smallwood - IMO, utter incompetent madness if that's why the reason for Hilton's exclusion.

He may be injured - I know some Under-23's are furloughed but not sure about Hilton.

Downing’s birthday probably just have him night of with nothing to play for 

I hope that is NOT the reason.

He is paid to be available to play if fit.

Nothing to play for??????? Sweet Jesus

I seen him playing for under 23's and hes being sulking and uninterested at times. Chapman should be showing the right attitude all.the time. 

I would bring him of the bench and start the same team. Why change a front four that played so well together in our final game? Just crazy to do so

Only just catching up on this thread.

The thing with Chapman is he is different. Has a different skill set than the other attackers.

Last game and this game is irrelevant, but in those Barnsley and Wigan games when we we're piss poor, I'd rather have had some minutes of Chapman at the end than keep flipping up front between Samuel, Graham, Brereton, Gallagher. None of those are going to create you anything themselves.

Having Chapman on the bench as a bit of something different would be imaginative. Dropping Gallagher and Brereton because they were poor at Wigan, then bringing them on to try and change the game a few days later at Barnsley, is unimaginative as a manager.

I guess I do not understand the inclusion of Johnson. I suppose I Just have to trust mowbray on that one.

Shame Mowbray hasn’t been particularly bothered about picking his “strongest 11” in the previous 45 games... tonight might have meant something.

A Rovers game always means something.

A bit odd but the team sheet was up a good 50 mins before KOff too. 
 

Looking forward to seeing Pelly Ruddock and Harry Cornick tonight

Can't really complain about that line up too much apart from Walton.

I'm having that problem where it asks me to put in the promo code again on the I follow.

I don't wanna be Mr Statto, but on the whole every teamsheet is up exactly 60 mins before kickoff..... for every club......Worldwide.

The twitter pages will have it listed almost to the min.

How do I know this? A massive gambling habit. 😟

There's nowt like waiting to see if the star striker is going to playing.......... for a Paraguay Primera Division relegation battle. 😂😂

Same timing i'm guessing.

Hence it goes public.

But one of the posters more involved with the sport may put me right.

A stunner from Armstrong!

Weird that there was no reaction from either team when it went in given it could send them down
