My daughter was born this morning so not even Rovers can ruin my day for once.

Not really bothered about today, just hoping for no injuries or a replay.

Happy to see some rotation so hopefully Williams, Bell, Chapman, Buckley and Brereton all start. May even see Davenport.

Thank you. I also concur with your thoughts on squad rotation. Given Johnson’s hit and miss form, I’d be interested in seeing a Travis/Davenport combo. Or even Brad Lyons

Halftime, 1-0 to Birmingham. I feel like they are forward heavy with no midfield presence. Probably will see Davenport being thrown on sooner or later, along with Chapman on for Brereton.

Rovers have dominated possession throughout, couple of wicked crosses by Downing, but nothing to show for it.

Armstrong doing his best to make sure that we don't score a goal.

Gallagher has missed four goals - but we have a penalty!V Brum down to 10. Armstrong scores - 1-1.

Had to do a bit of a double take reading this one. Got slightly excited for a minute and then remembered it wasn't 2005 any more.

Great opportunity here, but it seems I’ve seen a lot of 10-man teams scoring goals lately
