I'd definitely play Biamou, Nazon, Stevenson and the twins. Ponticelli off the bench too.
seems he is playing really strong side as a kick up the backside for Southend defeat... Hopefully we can still pull off a shock
In Robins' first spell in L1, we struggled to build momentum and put together a run of wins. So at this point in the season we should try and build that momentum early on without risking doubts for the game.
where has he said this? got a link?
Stokes would be the only doubt but I'd not fancy Cramwell or Lahey against Samuel.
Beavon only played 70mins Saturday so should be good to go again unless he's a niggle. Biamou looked a little raw to me still on Saturday to go against a good Blackburn side tho played a nicely waited pass to JJ, a bit more time for him to adapt from the bench and he will come good.
We will need these players further down the line so why not play them in a cup game first. Players will adapt far easier on the pitch than on the bench.
i live in Blackburn and info not in paper just gossip from couple of guys i know who work at bramhall where rovers train..might be shite but they usually get the team nailed on most weeks
your avatar makes me feel things
I swear this was meant to be £10.
Has something changed?
yup i would like to know this.i paid 12
£12 isnt it?
TICKETS: Sky Blues vs Blackburn tickets now on sale!
they defintley sent something out about it being a tenner
I take your points... see what MR does tonight I suppose. He's the casting vote after all.
he said after saturday game that he might need to ring the changes
i expect 5 or 6 changes minimum
'The main target is to get out of this league' but Rovers boss won't be making wholesale changes for Coventry City cup clash
No Bradley Dack at least.
Elliott Ward and Dominic Samuel amongst the former players names tonight.
elliott ward still going?
samuel could be dangerous. i just hope we play well. if we lose 2-1 with a spirited performance it should still give us confidence going into league 2 games vs poorer opposition
Smash Samuel early on and put him out of the game, mess Ward's hair up and go through him and he won't want it either.
That was like me against some little chav striker on Saturday.
Jones to score first and city to win is 70/1 on sky bet! worth a couple quid surly!
Couldn't make it Saturday, looking forward to going up tonight. One side of my family is from Blackburn so even though they're my de facto 2nd team, I hope we stuff them so I get bragging rights. Just like the FA Cup game at Ewood in '08 sadly my head says that might not be the case...
i am worried that after eurphoria of saturday we will get that losing feeling again even though we are playing a league 1 team.
but like i said earlier the performance is more important
Craig Conway and Ben Gladwin also Sheffield Utd target Darragh Lenihan are out. I'm glad the first two are out as they're v good players, especially Gladwin from his Swindon days.
I would just like a day out at Wembley.
This is important for confidence - do well against a stronger team and our team will benefit for the league match - remember they have only just got together so its a good experience - hope my lasy years ticket works
Plus £1 booking fee or £13 on the gate. Makes sense
I'll be there.
I do hope our fans don't set too high expectations for Ponti. He is a kid who ought to be in the development side for a few more years, not a serious contender to be a regular starter as some one here seem to think. He has talent and has scored goals but that doesn't mean he ought to be blooded now. I'm of the school of thought whereby it's easy to undermine players' development by picking them too soon. CCFC has definitely been guilty of picking youngsters sooner than they ought to have done and I hope this changes. I have no problem with someone like Ponty training with the first team squad and making the occasional bench appearance as cover etc, but it's far too soon to be calling for him to be starting or for considering him as a first teamer.
when will team news be out? about 6pm?
An hour before kick off so 6.45
But we're a better team than last season when we were league 1,have #have faith! B-)
2-1 to us.
Not sure about Stevenson to start or Biamou, but agree with the rest. Oh and I think it'll go to extra time and perhaps even Pens 2-2.
trying to be my friend again? i accept your apology
lol thats a joke!
Think I heard Phil Upton hint at 7changes.
Don't know where he got that from.
Incorrect use of the term friend. Besides you only have creepy eyes for tony.
