DAILY SPORTS DEBATE: Should Blackburn Rovers play two up front?

Lancashire Telegraph: Rudy Gestede Rudy Gestede

BLACKBURN Rovers handed a first start to loan striker Rudy Gestede yesterday, as Gary Bowyer opted for two up front against Sheffield Wednesday.

Rovers have often played with only Jordan Rhodes as an out and out striker this season, with the likes of Leon Best and DJ Campbell starting rarely.

Should Rovers continue to play with two up front now, or revert to one up front for Sunday’s home game against Birmingham City and the trip to Leeds United on New Year’s Day?

Yes to two up front but not necessarily two strikers. I don't want to see either Best or Campbell but I suppose we need to give Gestede another chance

Its not as simple as that. Based on performance this year 1 striker is the way to go on the proviso that TWO centrally creative players don a 5 man midfield.

Our best performances (Bolton and Barnsley) saw an interchange of cairney dunny and evans with a single holding player (lowe). Since Evans is injured, rochina and/or dunny MUST start. We can only afford to deploy a single defensive mid (lowe or williamson).

The window needs to see us sign a box to box midfielder and a creative spark.
We also need a winger with pace to match king. Taylor, marshall and judge are all sub-par.
