Mads Frokjaer-Jensen is quality.

Boro battered us at their place, but they look a different, beatable team right now.

Potts and Browne are out though, as well as Holmes and Best. It means McCann will probably be shunted out to RWB and Ryan Ledson will start in midfield. Alternatively, Millar might be played on his wrong side, with Brady on the left. We're weaker either way.

Not signing a replacement RWB after sending back Calvin Ramsay was pure negligence.

Woodman
Storey, Lindsay, Hughes
Millar, McCann, Whiteman, Brady
Frokjaer
Riis, Keane

All that effort to get back into the game wasted in a flash from us.

Great strike from Yaser but poor defending. What a shame.

Very avoidable goals too.

No idea how we're winning. We've offered nothing, not a single passage of play, barely completed a pass.

Millar scored from absolutely nothing. Our only shot.

Luckily, Boro look absolutely shit up front, and we haven't had too much to worry about.

We defended and scrapped well but were second best in pretty much every department.

Will take that win all day long, but Boro must be baffled how they've lost that.

Plastic Rovers at home on Saturday. You'd expect a comfortable win on paper but the Championship doesn't work like that. A win here would make it 4 in a row, 16pts from the last 21.

Injuries mounting for us. Potts, Holmes, and Best definitely out, Lindsay and Hughes big doubts. A few others looked leggy too and may need a rest, Whiteman maybe.

Possible team:

Woodman
Storey, Whatmough, Cunningham
Millar, Browne, Whiteman, Brady
Frokjaer
Keane, Riis​

A win and clean sheet but a fortunate one maybe.

Relying on individuals at the moment.

Not consistent as a team or team selection .

Weird one. Should feel happy that we came back from 2 down, but it's 2 points dropped at home. We just didn't create enough in the second half and Liam Millar is wasted on the right.

Still, 10pts from our last 4 games, and the only one we've lost in our last 7 was away at Leeds due to an injury time penalty.

Brady's strike was a beauty.

Coventry away tomorrow night. Moved very late for their FA cup game on TV, fucking over plenty of fans who had already bought train tickets.

Our record against Coventry is pretty insane though. 12 wins, 8 draws, and 0 defeats since 2007. Apart from one defeat in that shitty lower league cup. That's 1 defeat in 27 league games.

Guaranteed to get smashed 4-0 now.

Same team hopefully, Millar back on the left, Brady on the right. We miss Brad Potts.

What a half. Destroyed them. Riis has been insanely good. Hopefully no second half drama.

That was weirdly easy. Didn't break a sweat second half.

Twists & turns, who'd have thought it after the season we've been had so far, eh?!

Pressure back on us tomorrow, home to Brum who have won their last two. We play close to our level, we win.

Very tight at the bottom. We’ve given ourselves a chance but I genuinely can’t call it. It’s a shame we gave everyone else a 12 game head start!

Massive game against Hull, deserves that 6-pointer cliche. They're very good away from home but I'm pretty confident at the minute. A draw wouldn't be a bad result.

Same team. Browne at RWB and McCann in the middle worked well against Coventry, and means Millar can play in his proper position.

That second half was a really good watch, and I think we edged it.

McCann my man of the match, but I also thought Whiteman was very good, and maybe the first and last time i'll ever say this, but Storey was excellent.

We look so much fitter than we did before Christmas. Our high press has been so good lately.

Decent point in the grand scheme of things, but a shame Norwich won.
