Hoping we can continue our little winning run here although it would open the play offs up to Rovers which is not ideal. Do fancy our chances of scoring a couple against their shambles of a defence so should be a decent game.

We've reason to be confident but so do they, expecting a good game with goals.

Assuming Gallagher is available then it's got to be the same team for me, DJ back in if he's got a knock.

Rudd
Fisher, Storey, Davies, Hughes
Pearson, Gallagher
Potts, Browne, Maguire
Stockley

Ripley, Earl, Ledson, Johnson, Barkhuizen, Nmecha, Moult​

Can't be any worse than last years shithousery. One of the worst wins I've ever watched.

I'd take a point, a decent performance and a couple of goals, 2-2.

The game that killed our play off hopes. If we'd won that we'd have ended up above you, missed a penalty and then Maxwell let one straight through his hands from that free kick. Awful game.

Probably the win that sealed our place too, proper smash and grab that tho. A wins a win but that was pretty awful. Up there with Rowett’s worst games as manager.

Seem to recall Lawrence and Fisher having a bit of a to-do last year. Be interesting to see how that pans out.

Fisher has a go at everyone, he's as mad as Pearson.

Hopefully we do, I can't see you making the play offs either way. Assuming you're a Blackburn fan.
It's a long shot for us,i was happy for a mid table finish at the start of the season and anything better is a bonus.

Moult's hamstring has flared up again, will be out for another couple of weeks.

Barker, Rafferty or Huntington on the bench then.

We'll have a few absentees with the sound of it; Carson, Wisdom and Mount out injured. Bogle suspended. I might get a game at RB.

Not sure how we didn't score in the second half, absolutely all over them for 45 minutes. Just luck of the bounce I think, especially the Potts chance. Derby's back five did some good last ditch defending though, first time we've failed to score at Deepdale this season I think.

Wilson had two good long range efforts that hit the woodwork but don't remember anything from them other than that, would have been same as last season if they nicked that with a long distance effort out of nothing.

Nugent looks poor now.

Aye, shame to see Nuge nowadays. Looks a shadow of the player he once was. Granted we gave him literally nothing to feed on all game but the simple things of his game are petering out. Still a ledge of a bloke.

We were pretty rancid going forward but full credit to PNE second half, they didn't let us out. Nice to see a good defensive performance for a change. Hopefully Keogh's MOTM performance might start to change your opinion on him SF_ .....

Keogh was good, still think he's a liability when he's asked play out from the back though, think Sean Morrison summed up my thoughts on that in the back of that taxi.

He is, as are all CB's still in this division that aren't attracting attention from the PL tbf.

Shame this place went down last week as there was plenty to talk about after the game but who can be arsed now, it's almost a week old. Onto the next one.
