    Preston lose most weeks at the mo. And are on a terrible run. Even an inept side like us may get lucky. Who knows? I'll take a 6-1 though. Bennett wont be playing so we stand half a chance.

    Agreeing with Champs on this,Preston are Schite at the moment so it's a 2-1 victory for the Bastids..

    Robin, I've changed my mind. I'm opting for a 2-0 Rovers win.
    Also, after an hour or so spent looking through various fan-sites, it suddenly struck me that you almost never see a statement like the one below (so I'll write it now!):

    "This is an intriguing game between two evenly-matched teams, both of which are a bit down on form (and, probably, confidence). The outcome is unpredictable. I'm looking forward to it, and quite excited by the prospect."

    Hopefully you read this Auks, and maybe it will explain to you where I am coming from a bit.
    In response to that last sentence.

    I am dreading this game. I have only really enjoyed watching 2 or maybe 3 games this season. I rarely enjoy watching us. It is rare we play well for 90 mins. I enjoyed Bristol and Hull away.
    They were the only games I thought we looked a decent side, and deserved to win.
    I am normally watching games through my fingers, its that bad at times.
    I do think the standard is often pretty poor.
    I see alot of 'safe' football at this level. Easy sideways passing or back. No real flair, no real passion. It happens in small short outbursts. At our club, its all very nice, very safe. No taking risks. Nobody is being pushed to improve or run an extra mile. Its all very much going through the motions.
    Without Dack, I find it hard to get excited about any players. Nobody wants to do anything different, take on the opposition. Find a killer pass. Its all get the ball, pass it back to the full back (like Downing does, which you translate to he is a good player and his stats say he is) ....he isn't. I've spent 33 years watching different levels of football, and players. He is a 'safe' footballer at the very end of his career. Good pro, but adds nothing. And wont do anything to get me off my seat. I don't go and watch professional football to see players do what I can do with ease. I go to see them do things I couldn't. You can tell me all you like about his stats all you like. I will maintain we will always be a middling side treading water going nowhere with guys like him, Johnson, Bennett etc.

    I generally get this feeling we could, and should be doing better. And its rare I end up after match, thinking we have given a great account of ourselves. At times, I do think we play quite good football, which I like. That's literally the only reason I still go. I wouldn't bother making a 3 hour round trip for games if we where like Wigan or Birmingham who just kick people, and play no football. At least we try. I'll give us that. Defensively, I find it painful to watch, as I never feel confident. I fear the ball going anywhere near that keeper. If Bennett touches the ball I can barely watch, as something woeful normally happens.

    I'm not looking forward to tomorrow, not one bit. If we play well, over 90 mins, it will be a rarity.
    Yes, of course we can scrap a win. This level shows anyone can do that. And tomorrow, I think the law of averages will mean we shade this one.

    As for enjoying, Its rare you get a good game over 90 mins at this level. That is also decent quality. It is normally quite even. Buy quality wise, I don't think its good.

    I do think we will win this 2-1.
    Have I got any interest? No. I am missing (by choice) this home game for the first time in a while. And I have paid for my ticket already as I have a season ticket. I am not sure I will be coming back to Ewood anytime soon. I have just lost interest massively over the past season.
