Just as we build momentum we lose it, but on the bright side, we seem to bounce back from every defeat and hopefully we can do it this Saturday v Wycombe Wanderers.
Goalkeeper, Marko Marosi looks to be a doubt, after coming off against Blackpool early in the second half with an injury, but had already conceded 4 goals prior to that. Ross Etheridge will be looking to claim back the number one spot, but I’m sure that if Marosi is fine, then he will play!
Cedric Evina will miss this weekend’s game, after picking up an injury. Evina has injured his toe, and ironically this comes at the same time as Dany N’Guessan leaves the club (because he’s also known for injuring his toe too). This is the perfect opportunity for youngster, Tyler Garratt, to earn his place in the side.
Ferguson after the Blackpool match said, “Oh they’ll be changes” pointing out that, “Middleton was poor”, and that the ball was given “away in the middle of the pitch”, meaning he could be swinging the axe on a few of the midfielders, and one of them in particular will be Middleton by the sounds of it.
The visit of Wycombe will see the return of former Rovers striker, Adebayo Akinfenwa, who played up front for Rovers in 2004, making 9 appearances and scoring 4. So far this term, Akinfenwa has scored two goals for Wycombe.
Wycombe sit 21st in the table, and are without a win since the 1st October.
The last time we faced Wycombe was in 2006, during the league cup where we drew with them 2-2, with goals from Jonathan Forte and Graeme Lee.
This will be the first time that we play Wycombe at the Keepmoat, so let’s hope we can keep our good home record going, with a win over Wycombe this Saturday!
Predicted lineup v Wycombe Wanderers
Marosi; Mason, Wright, Butler, Garratt; Houghton, Blair, Rowe, Coppinger; Mandeville and Marquis.
