A win would put us in second, having dropped to 5th today thanks to Norwich being useless.

We'll mess this up and not take advantage of Ipswich and Bournemouth slipping up mid-week.

Derby 1-1 Blackburn

Derby 1-0 Blackburn

Bounced back result wise today and I hope we can do it in the league too. I'm not here for about a month now so I expect us to take the league and cup by storm like we usually do!

To say how much worry our defence causes me, we seem to grind out the clean sheets and another one wouldn't surprise me here.

Blackburn will be full of it after beating Swansea, but their league form recently has been hit and miss. If our defence can tighten up a bit and we play the same attacking movement like we did against Chesterfield, then I feel we can get a good win.

3-1 Derby

Got a bad feeling for this one. I think he'll set them up like Rosler did for Wigan.

Rams 1 - 2 Blackburn

Opportunity missed to go joint top with our game in-hand.

Cracking result, the new man in the goals, clean sheet and joint top. Couldn't have asked for much more really.

When I saw 6 added minutes I thought the worst. Checking my phone as much as possible, we got through it well.

Celebrating in Bavaria with style now! Cheers!

A little part of me dies when I think of Darren Bent playing in the Championship.

Aston Villa can't score goals and there he is, in the Championship!

Darren Bent is lethal, got such a good mind to react to everything that happens if it can result in a goal or attacking move of some sort. Comes on and in two minutes has an instant goal.

A good game, Blackburn were pretty limited and didn't really do so much, and we did alright going forwards. A good step forward after our recent setback and hope we can carry on once again.

What were Blackburn doing with Gestede and Rhodes on the bench? I'd guess at Gestede had a slight knock as he was only on for 25 mins before going off, and Rhodes is getting ready for a move to Swansea. Any Blackburn fans know why they didn't start?

Got to say that Hughes was top class yet again, as was Mascarell.

Great to take advantage of Ipswich and Bournemouth slipping up next week. Can we stay here now please, instead of instantly slipping up the moment we get back in to the top two?

Gestede is rumoured to be off as well, I guess that's the reason for both of them. I don't really understand it though, they're arguably the best strike partnership in the league.
