Lancashire Telegraph: Blackburn Rovers fans' jury Blackburn Rovers fans' jury

What do you think the outcome of Sunday’s derby will be and why?

THE result at Bolton was shocking, so was the performance, but now that’s out of our system, I’m confident of a win against our rivals.

Burnley have had a good string of results but player for player, we are the stronger team and should Grant Hanley, Tom Cairney and David Dunn return to action, then it will be a huge boost.

Regardless of form, Blackburn have always shown that they are superior, both on recent achievements and the head-to-head and I fully expect our quality to shine through once again to extend our unbeaten derby record to yet another season.

KELVIN WILKINS

ANY other side in their position would look at this game as one that a draw would be a satisfactory outcome.

Regardless of form or league placing, Burnley will feel the pressure of this being a must-win game.

I’ve heard Burnley fans say they’ll accept a play-off place as long as they break the 35-year hoodoo.

All this, despite Burnley being a decent side this season, of course plays into Rovers’ hands and surely they cannot let the fans down as they did Saturday.

Another 1-1 draw beckons.

SIMON SMITH

I CAN see the match report reading something like this: Burnley fans celebrated for the first time since 1979 as their team comprehensively outplayed Rovers.

Burnley are flying high at the moment and seemingly can do little wrong.

Rovers, however, had no answer to the rampant Clarets’ strike force as Danny Ings and Sam Vokes had an Ewood field day against Rovers’ defence.

Huge sighs of relief were heard around Ewood Park as the final whistle blew, the teardrops exploded and reality struck with a vengeance.

`Forever in Rovers shadow regardless of league position ` Classic Dudley,classic. That is exactly how we used to console ourselves when Rovers were ahead of us. Well Mr Dudley, the worm turned last season and has now grown into a snake. It could be an awful long time before you will be ahead of The Clarets again. I suggest you man up and accept your position of second best because it might not be long before Preston overtake you as well.

So, a life with no money for Rovers. How you guys coping eh? Having to get by like the rest of us. Your not? Oh dear. Its like going back to 1928 to 1995. When you had to bat with the same resources proportionately as everyone else. Didn't win a stitch then. Get used to it. Its your future. Good luck on Sunday. You'll need it.

I'm not going to go in to the reasons why burnley are in rovers shadow because quite frankly it's embarrassing and blindingly obvious on every aspect from results to support to silverware to history. Explain last season? Only burnley fans can celebrate the fact they finished 11th and 3 points in front of rovers, jokes. Burnley may be 2nd but there's still 14 games left and would be an embarrassment in the prem like they were 5 years ago. Love to meet u in the play offs so rather than watch 4500 inbreds crying, we could watch 30000 (if u could get anywhere near that many).

2 points, 5 points, 10 points, 20 points doesn't matter, you haven't won anything yet have you?

No need to explain anything to an idiot like you is there?

Not changed your ID again yet I see.

What a pity you didn't take me up on my offer earlier in the season when you were another of your repulsive troll ID's.

I would much rather exchange banter and insults with a decent Burnley fan who has more than your three brain cell's, some wit and intelligence, but I suppose I will have to drop my standards for now.

We will be up against it

struggling to even pick a side

Are Cairney Kilgallon Hanley Dunn even fit

Will Spurr have to play Central defence again?

Right and Left back positions potentially very weak if Olson Henley or Kane have to start there for they will be got at mercilessly

Bowyer has left us totally exposed

will have to play three in midfield to at least compete

Are Cairney Hanley Kilgallon Dunn even fit to play.

If so Robinson Spurr Hanley Kilgallon Lowe (RB)
Conway Cairney Evans Varney King Gestede

i have not seen anything from Rhodes quite frankly that justifies his selection

Verney central role behind Gestede and dropping back to help in high up central midfield position

justification:

He has shown far more movement and is quicker than JR will ever be .
He along with Gestede can also press high up Burnley back 2 / 4 which we didnot do against Bolton once for JR is to slow

Rovers took just over 24,800 to Wembley as 2nd Division Playoff winners in 1992. Clarets took 36,780 to Wembley as (equivalent to) 3rd Division Playoff winners in1994, and over 38,000 for the playoff final for the Prem in 2009.

Yep, its fair to say we'll take more than 30,000. Would you I wonder?

'I’ve heard Burnley fans say they’ll accept a play-off place as long as they break the 35-year hoodoo' You really haven't heard any Burnley fan say this have you, because as someone who lives in the town and attends games regularly EVERYONE I have spoken to would take a defeat on Sunday if it meant promotion.
