Greg Cunningham out for the season and Darragh Lenihan picking up his annual lomg term injury already has changed the trajectory of our season I think. We either patch together a League One grade defence and hope to god we actually start to score goals to mitigate the inevitable horror show at the back or we drop to a back three with Bennett and Downing at wing back and hope to god no one realises neither can defend. Huddersfield have played a blinder bringing in the Cowleys and they've just had two weeks off to properly begin to make their mark. At best we'll draw, at worst we'll get dicked. Either way Mowbray will stay here until he dies in office in 2047 with Rovers in the North West Counties League and Sam Gallagher still on right wing.

Really need to get back to winning ways. We're slipping into the same run of form we always seem to around this time of the season. Our squad have shown they have the teamwork and the determination to overcome hurdles so hopefully this one will be another one of those. Orient haven't done too badly since getting promoted and they've managed to bag a few wins. Joe Widdowson and Craig Cray making returns to Blundell Park too.

What did you do to him? :o

As for us, we're strong at home so hoping for a win, though guaranteed that Kadeem Harris will score against us.

Torn ACL. Lenihan has done similar but nowhere near as bad. Disaster for us as left back is the only position we don't have suitable cover for. In that respect he's the worst player to get injured for us.

What about Amari Bell?

Simply isn't good enough. We could make do if it was only for a couple of matches, however the thought of Bell playing every game from now until April makes me feel ill. Would rather have Derek Williams back there or sacrifice Stuart Downing's midfield contributions and job satisfaction and stick him in.

Etheridge back in goals. Tad harsh as I thought Smithies had done alright but there we go. Murphy also starts so he'll likely cause a riot tonight.

As if Lee Tomlin is still playing. Guy's been round forever.

Round and around forever. Seem to remember him at Rushden & Diamonds in what feels like about 2005.

Very undeserved point. We were piss poor for the whole game, though it was great to see Tomlin get a goal. Needs to be starting as our lack of creativity was clear for all to see.

It hasn't been a poor season for Rovers this year but not a great one either. We are seeing a side that don't look like they will go down(although you can't rule it out completely as it's a long season) but don't look like a side capable of promotion either. It'll probably be a similar campaign to last year in terms of the final league position.

I wonder if Preston can keep it up this season? In recent times, Blackburn, Burnley, Bolton, Wigan and even Blackpool, have all had periods in the top flight, but Preston haven't. In fact, they haven't been up there since Tom Finney was playing his trade and that's incredible considering how they were once a side that won the first division undefeated.

Grimsby back to old losing ways. Down 2-0 but we always seem to play better second half so...

Didn't see this earlier from the Accrington vs Ipswich game but very nice to see.
