Bizarre game, as MON said, second to so many balls but still we run out the winners. Not a bad habit to get this winning ugly business!

Think im gonna wet my pants. (With exitement not incontinence!)

I think we were helped last night by the fact that Blackburn looked pretty poor, we would have been there for the taking for a lot of other teams in the Premiership. That said though, everyone knows that the sign of a good side is being able to win when you're playing poor.

Far from convincing, but that has been the case with most of our home games this season.

A mere four shots on target, from which we scored three times. We just dont shoot often enough, and theres very little goal threat coming from our midfielders. Hopefully a fully fit Steve Sidwell can change all of that. He at least is prepared to shoot on sight.
