The games seem to be flying past!
Next up for Rovers, an away game at Harrogate. The 'Town' have made a decent start to new life in Division Two having won 4, drawn 3 and lost 3 so far. They have struggled for points recently with losses against Colchester and Newport and Rovers will be looking for some revenge after losing 8-7 on penalties when the sides met in the 1st round of the Carabao Cup earlier in the season.

This is Rovers' first game without manager Mike Jackson and it's unlikely Rovers will have a new manager in place before the game on Tues night. Rovers will have most of the squad to pick from apart from long term absentees Stefan Payne and Morgan Ferrier. It will be interesting to see what formation Rovers go with, who will be picked and how they will play after Jackson's departure.

hoping Parky gives the lads a kick up the butt. need the two up top need Feeney and Khan on the wings and they need to get the good balls in that box we need pressing up in the opposition side of the field and give them nothing we need the first goal and win first and second balls

Has there been confirmation of whether Dawes is in joint charge for this game ? It is difficult to know how the players will respond to him and Parkinson, and pretty difficult to predict the performance and result.

Harrogate looked a decent side when we played them on the opening day and their confidence will be high after their positive start to the season. This is certainly another difficult game in our current dishevelled state. I just hope we press the opposition, play with some conviction and create a few chances.

If Parky is in charge, there might be a bounce back, as the players show what they can do.

I just hope we have a bloody go and dont just set the stall out to put everyone in our own half and try and counter...... (by smacking long balls forward to a striker 50 yards away from anyone else). I am not as concerned about the result as I am about the aptitude of the players and hopefully the more positive approach to our play.

Presumably Parky in charge with/without Dawes tomorrow. I'd assume we might go for a formation where Vaughan is less isolated, but as for actual line-up couldn't hazard a guess. Harrogate looked the better side in their penalty Carabao Cup win over Rovers and have made a steady start to their first season in the FL, though will be missing Josh Falkingham who was sent off at the weekend. I'd prefer us to get something out of the game, though that feels unlikely, but we need to avoid a hammering.

Hope it is mainly Parky doing the organising - Dawes I am surprised is still here even if only for now. Going for a 2-1 win tonight and us playing some decent football.

I would expect it to a kind of "wipe the slate clean" type of selection this evening with the recent form of some individuals being essentially ignored due to either being played out of position or in a team without a defined pattern of play. In fact the most important thing for tonight is having a game plan and picking the individuals who are most likely to carry it through. I wouldn't expect any of the young ex-Academy pros to start despite the Parky influence.

Hopefully CBT gets a start as it fit he could be important for any new manager

Ridehalgh, Spearing and Feeney return to the side, CBT starts.

Looks like a 451. Strong line up.

Good to see CBT get a start, but otherwise no real surprises. Young still out of favour.
