    Blackburn v Swansea

    We dust ourselves down and go again after the bitter disappointment of midweek.
    It was a battling performance but we were done by the ref in the end. Letís hope for better officials for this match then.
    Our form away from home is not very good lately with no wins in six matches and itís about time we changed that.
    With games running out we are 5 points adrift of a play off spot so badly need a win tomorrow if we are to do anything this season.

    Garrick replaces Kalulu, who drops to the subs bench. Celina still down with an illness, Dyer takes his place.

    A deflected shot in the 95 min, of 97 mins play, via Cabango, gave Blackburn the draw.
    We led from the 48 min when Ayew fired in a penalty to make it 1-2. Danny Graham came on and missed a penalty and hit the post.
    Not sure about the subs with Roberts for Garrick on 70 mins and Gallagher going off for Wilmot on 90 mins, midfield light resulting in us sitting too deep again, inviting Blackburn on.

    Groundhog Day! It’s happening over and over, conceding last minute goals.
    Hull, Fulham and now Blackburn, five points dropped in the last three away games.
    We could have been in the play off spots, instead we are in 9th place four points adrift.
    We were actually given a penalty as well, but the ref decided to even things up by giving them a soft penalty which Woodman saved.

    Ten games left, four points adrift.
    Top of the table WBA are the visitors to the Liberty next Saturday.
    Wigan showed the way yesterday beating them on their own patch 0-1.
    Let's do it.

    I hope Cooper studies that Wigan game carefully. We capitulated there and got hammered last time.
    There is a way to beat them. Any team can beat the other in this crazy league, let’s do it.
