Did anyone else really expect anything different? Let's smash them.

I like the options from the bench. Want to get crosses in to their box? Hugill, Placheta, Hernandez. Want to close a game out? Zimmerman, Sorensen, Tettey. Want to hit them on the break? Placheta, Hernandez. Creative players not clicking? Vrancic, Stiepermann. All them are viable options to play their part either by doing something different or as direct replacements.

Our best XI?

Hand to argue with that.

Not 100% convinced about this.  Rupp was a key element of our success the other night. Guess we'll find out soon!

Rupp is injured

That's only what we've been told. I think it's Dean Ashton all over again.

? Where is he being transferred to with the X ray of his hamstring?

Rupp's reported to be in London - X-ray is a cover story - it's pretty obvious that West Ham have tapped him up.

I know, it was just that maybe a more steady player in the midfield three might be better than having Dowell/Buendia/Cantwell. As I said, we'll soon see!

Home to Blackburn minus Dack Lakey. Great opportunity.

Steady? Come on Lakey, we have the mayor and Skipp for that. We want a front four that can seriously worry the opposition. Rupp would have been very unlucky to have been dropped after Wednesday, so it was a no brainer for me. Dowell in, especially after his performances in the last 2 games. We do not need to have a defensive 3 in midfield for this game, at this time.

I’m sure Dowell is ready to play a big role in the run-in, and with no international duty to worry him, thankfully.  Get Rupp fit for PNE and we might even be able to afford to give Skipp a rest.

If anyone else said that you'd be straight on the case giving it " trust in farke" ," it's a squad game" " Daniel knows best" blah etc blah. 

And you wonder why you get called a ' Contrary Mary'.

Can’t argue with it, but I’d still love to see Sorensen given the rest of the season once we’re up, if there’s no chance of Skipp next season then it’s time to blood him in midfield.....the more game time the better his development! Thinking ahead.

The lad Garner at Forest looks tidy

And Armstrong, between them worth 21 of their 49 goals this season.

Also Gallagher and Elliot (5 goals each) on the bench from the start.  It would be a considerable upset if we don't win this now.

Great side. Shame for Rupp to get injured obviously, particularly after playing so well on Wednesday, but it has made the team selection really easy. If that front 4 play even half as well as they have been recently they could have a field day.

We'd go SEVENTEEN points clear of Brentford if we win this one. Let's make it 10 in a row please lads.

Not good enough for Watford = Definitely not good enough for us.

Very clear that Blackburn are going to press very high. But means we can  beat the press to create an overload
