Three away wins on the trot would be incredible - promotion form! I’d happily settle for a draw. In fact if we can win two out of every three games from now on, I’d bite everyone’s hand off. ;)

Another victory would be fantastic, but I think a draw would be a decent result in this game, provided we beat Lincoln on Saturday. Blackpool are experiencing the new manager bounce and are in good form, winning their last two home games and getting a good point at Fleetwood on Saturday. The Tangerines brought in some decent players in January, such as Gary Madine.

I think we will be unchanged with Jennings behind Vaughan, although Ridehalgh picked up a knock in the second half on Saturday and was struggling for the last thirty minutes.

It is difficult to gauge the travelling numbers; perhaps 6-700.

He is a decent player but will never forgive him for thinking he was too good to play for us on loan a number of seasons ago. I really hope he doesn't score against us.

Yes, that was in 2012-13 when we were on the slide after Cassidy was recalled.

We ended up with Mama Sidibe instead. :oops:

He went off injured on Saturday so may not play

They are going to be confident and will look at punishing us early. Although having watched the last two games I'm also confident the lads will put a really good shift in as we also have some momentum on our side. If we can shut them out we have every chance of getting something. As said, I draw wouldn't be a bad result either. Although it will add a bit more pressure on us with the remaining games that are left.

Agree that this will be a challenging contest due to Blackpool’s upturn with a new manager bounce. Would settle for getting something out of the game.

If Ridehalgh is injured, presume Woods to come in? Otherwise it will be interesting to see if Micky springs any more surprises with team selection. I missed the home game too, but read that it was one of Ferrier’s best performances in a Rovers shirt, so perhaps he may feature at some point.

Had forgotten about Sidibe, he was truly awful when playing for Rovers though did ok elsewhere.

Who was worse Sidibe or Michael Ricketts?

Jay Spearing from the Wirral playing against his local side tonight.

Strange line up. CBT on the bench and Monthe in. Looks like 5-3-2. Ferrier starts

More changes than expected tonight. Back 3 with wing-backs presumably, though think Ridehalgh, who is on the bench, better than either Woods or Monthe in that role. Ferrier maybe in on the strength of his good home game v Blackpool, but the changes in midfield do puzzle me.

Maybe a few injury niggles? Otherwise, I agree that it does seem a bit odd. Maybe MM sees something in the Blackpool set up we can exploit. I hope so!

Eyebrow slightly raised. Maybe as RLC alluded to, McCullough cannot do the Saturday/Tuesday gig yet so bringing Manny into a back 3 is maybe enforced to cover for Luke’s absence in the starting XI.
