6 points off the automatics again. It so frustrating. Those missed penalties could have put us right in there.

That was a tougherchallenge than I think people gave it credit for in the build up and we did well to win it. Great 3 points. So, so important. Need Barnsley, Cardiff and Bournemouth to start dropping points now. Badly.

Whole new look to our attack if we have Puscas, Meite and Joao all fit - lots more options there. Such a shame Swift is injured as think he’d make a huge difference in our midfield

WestYorksRoyal Appreciated the Puscas celebration for winning a corner.

Reminded me of a NFL player after making a QB sack

Really like the guy. He was out on his feet but made the challenge and won the corner. Loved his celebration.

Good result but feel like we could have carried on attacking and got the win still.

Why lucky? What did they create?

It wasn't amazing you watch but excellent pressing in the first half brought about a goal and we had a couple of other chances. 2nd half, solid defence and waiting for the error from them to try and break. The error always came, the break didn't.

Playing a different formation and getting the run of home defeats off our back, will take it especially when our talismanic striker was totally off his game, bar his clear thinking to set up Puscas.

Pressure on Bournemouth and Barnsley tomorrow now.

The team look tired though. We need to keep this going through to the international break. A vital win. Two ugly wins on the trot and successive clean sheets. It was not fun to watch. I was kicking every ball in the end.

Yeah agreed. We need Yaks back. Let’s hope it’s this weekend. Fingers crossed the news on Morro and Rino is not bad.

Sutekh Here we go, settled for the 1-0. McIntyre on for Joao.

Or changing it up because Blackburn have dominated the second half?


Yep, need an extra man in midfield. Good call imho.



Yep, McIntyre makes a good DM

After Saturday's game, we go to one game a week for a while. Will recover a bit.

We have a week off after Saturday, others around us don't. Massive if we can win that and hopefully the players get a couple of days off.

Yeh not lucky at all really. Comfortable really but do feel like we shouldn't have gone so defensive.

Justice done with that Armstrong miss

Just seen replay of him deliberately upending Moore just before the cross
