Be honest, would you take a defeat to see Blues sucked into the bottom three?
Now we’re out of the brown stuff ourselves, what else is there to play for?
For the third preview straight I’ll mention beating last season’s 58 point tally. That would be nice. We’re on 54 with four games left to play so should be doable.
Maybe if we can string a couple more wins together a top half finish? Villa are on 58 points in 12th but we’ve got a game in hand.
That one might be ambitious but something to strive for rather than just getting the deck chairs out.
It’s Wolves away, Villa at home and Brenford away that will decide Blackburn’s fate. They’re a point behind Forest in 21st and three points behind Blues with a better goal difference.
I think they need two wins and that’s probably achievable when you consider none of their opponents have anything left to play for.
Getting rid of Owen Coyle in favour of bringing in Tony Mowbray seemed like a sidewards step and he hasn’t been able to steer them clear of trouble as yet.
Sam Gallagher looked quite useful in our match up at Ewood Park earlier in the season. He’s bagged 12 goals in a struggling team and could be a viable summer target for Wolves when he returns to parent club Southampton in May.
Rovers have one of the worst away records in the league with just 3 wins and 12 defeats in their 21 matches to date. That ratio needs improving in their final two matches if they’re to survive.
Fair play to Paul Lambert and Wolves for seeing out a very good win at Elland Road on Monday. An unexpected bonus after the previous two performances.
It would be nice to see two up front for this one to put real pressure on a team who need a result. The pace of Dicko and Weimann should ask a lot of questions.
I’d bring Hause back in alongside Williamson because I think he’s worth persevering with in favour of Stearman who I think will leave.
Saiss is a player yet to convince me that he’s got the all round game to be considered a nailed on starter. Yes he can spray a few passes around but he loses possession too frequently and seems to be overrun by stronger opposition.
Will Costa play? Probably not, but I remain optimistic of seeing him at least once more in a gold shirt.
I think we might win this one. Marshall will probably do something significant against his former employers and now the pressure is off, Molineux can relax a bit.
