Have your say on the week's big issue
5:00pm Thursday 12th December 2013 in Sport
Rovers’ next four games – Millwall, Yeovil Town, Sheffield Wednesday and Birmingham City – are against sides currently below them in the table. What is your minimum points target?
LOOKING at the games, all of them are winnable – although 12 points from 12 might be asking a bit too much.
But 10 points – three wins and a draw – is well within our sights.
I have been pleased by the way we have been playing at home, bar the game against Charlton.
I’d also like to see Tom Cairney play in the middle more. For me he is the best footballer at the club and when he plays out wide we tend to go long more.
That’s not Jordan Rhodes’ game and it leaves him isolated. So I think if we brought Cairney inside we would win more games as he’s got the ability to open up defences.
ON the back of Saturday’s performance, Rovers must be looking to push on and move into next year with at least eight more points.
Three wins and a draw for a total of 10 would be good for morale, but the full 12 is within capabilities.
Ironically going to the best side in the division and attacking led to a great performance yet a 0-0 result.
But it’s at home where we've picked up points despite less impressive performances.
Rovers must remain unbeaten but too many draws don’t change much.
A LOT of people are looking up the table but arguably they should be looking down.
The good form of the bottom teams means we can easily be sucked into a relegation dogfight again.
A minimum of eight points will be needed and hopefully the latest crisis at the club won't affect the team or manager. The three home games are critical as our away form is not going to improve despite the QPR result.
Also, what might happen in the January transfer window? If we lose Tom Cairney, Jordan Rhodes and Scott Dann, then every point currently gained is gold dust.
