They worked really hard against a bunch of diving cheats and a referee who was out of his depth. In fact the only one of them who knew what they were doing was the female lino. Was it just me or did he signal two minutes of injury time left to a player and then blew his whistle 20 seconds later? He'd completely lost the plot by the end.
Then, they were still trying to wind our players up even after the final whistle and I'm sure a punch was thrown at one of our coaching staff. They will no doubt try and shift the blame onto us but the Rovers players resisted the constant goading admirably. Disgraceful and there may be more to come on that.

I can see the point about the substitutions but he clearly was worried about unsettling the defensive pattern (the only threat they had was the far post cross). That said, Cook looked knackered in the last ten minutes and I would have changed him. The only other thing I would say is how vulnerable to pace down the flanks we looked; the lad up against Ridehaulgh had him on toast for a spell in the first half. Battled to the end though.

All the same excuses again, diving cheats, parked busses, refs, crowds, dominated games, lots of chances, the clubs isn't learning, Brabin out
