Any verdict yet on the Bapaga injury, he looks quality ? Could he be our next Maddison or Wilson ?

I'll go for a draw

Marosi
Hyam Fadz Osti
Pask Sheaf Hamer Giles
Allen O'Hare
Godden​

Billson, Rose, Dabo, Shipley, Walker, Baka + either Mason or Eccles.

Expect Dabo to be back in from the start the following all going well. Possibly Rose too.

I feel weirdly confident about getting a result. Same team that finished first half against Bristol City.

I wish we had another ACM in so we didn't have to revert to two up top unless it's a desired change in shape when we want to make an attacking change.

I hope Hamer doesn't pick up another early yellow, best player on the pitch before he went off on Saturday.

Fucking bastards get to watch it still

Is this something the EFL / ifollow have messed up? Sure the press release when announced the season coverage across the league said season ticket holders would get games on Sky and the article the club have put up mentions future games on Sky being available.

Dabo got to be certain to start, played well v Gillingham
Not sure about Rose interesting headache for Robins. I thought Drysdale was class last night another headache.

I am usually far from a doom-monger, but feel a loss here. In which case we really need to stick to our principles and playing style, and not fall into a panic.

I hope we win, and if we repeat the performance on Saturday, we will have a good chance... But, as strange as it bloody sounds, I'd prefer us to play crap and lose on Friday than play well and lose... Confidence from last season could erode quickly!

Now we’re in the championship does anyone know roughly how many times we’ll get shown on sky?
Lowest last season was 4, highest was 21. The three promoted teams were shown 10 (Charlton), 5 (Barnsley) and 5 (Luton). As the biggest of the three promoted sides I'd imagine we'll be on 8-12 times this season depending on how the fixtures fall.

8 is about right i reckon, once a month maybe a bit less, doubt it would be more.

Two big pluses came out of Tuesdays game Bapaga and Declan Drysdale, even if fit which I doubt I don’t think Bapaga will start but what an outstanding prospect we have there and Drysdale looked class, again won’t start but can’t be far off.

In previous seasons the home team would receive £100k for being on sky and only £10k for away teams.

We'll win this one, 2-1 i reckon. We could do with getting a few points ahead of some pretty tough looking games (mind you, they all look difficult in this league!)

I'm really hoping we don't start to see a lot of tired legs after 60 minutes again, seeing the team being in the game for the majority of the game is so important, we can't be waiting for that sharpness to come back for a month of the season.

I think we'll win.

They were flattered by their result last week against Forest, who had 2-3 really (if our strikers missed them this place would be in uproar) good chances. QPR's goals were a pen, and rebound after a slice of luck after wasting time in the corner.

They sold their best player to Palace and haven't replaced him. They have 1 proper striker in the side - albeit a very good striker who scored last weekend and for Scotland the other day. Give him an early dead leg and it makes the day a lot easier.

They score a lot of goals but also concede a lot.

The final 9 games of last season (post-covid) they would've finished 22nd - probably lack of motivation after already securing mid-table mediocrity.

2 very good wingers, which is their outlet. One of whom (Chair) is about as big as a bag of crisps.

The result entirely depends on the defence, the attackers will do the business against these regardless.
