    Where has this rumour come from? Haven't heard a peep on our side.

    EDIT: We've sold 8000 season tickets for the Ricoh. There would be carnage if the move back was delayed. It's utter bullshit. :laugh:

    Some believe you will both escape the drop and it’s Derby or Huddersfield that should be worried.

    I know i’m still worried for Birmingham tbh.

    Absolutely bricking it. I knew it would come down to the end but this is too much! :laugh:

    We just cannot lose this game. I might be getting carried away but I think this game will decide who goes down.

    A win and we will be soo close!!

    Other than Mattock at left back (he's been out for months) that is probably our strongest line up.
    We'll see how much Tuesday's game took out of us once we get started.
    As I said earlier a draw wouldn't be too bad, but losing Arghhhhhh.
    I'll get behind the settee now!

    I'd wish ill on my granny if it meant staying up! :laugh:

    Ps if I could chose who stayed up between you or Coventry it would be you due to the mere fact Rotherham is only 25 miles away!

    I’d probably prefer a Cov win, keep the bottom three as far away from us as possible. A draw wouldn’t be a disaster, though neither team will want it. Just cracked open a beer and will watch with interest, nice to have a game on that has a real stake for both teams involved.

    Cov started well tbf

    Going by the BBC website text stuff looks like Coventry have done everything but score.

    Coventry look good value for their lead from what I have seen.

    Hardly surprising, but Rotherham look tired.

    What a massive win! Thought out luck had run out with this keeper playing a blinder but we just needed a scabby one nil. We have to sign Østigård in the summer should we stay up.

    Not much quality on show, but result probably fair on balance. Rotherham created very little. I think we might pose Coventry a few more questions on Sunday...Will still be a battle.

    Absolutely out-played but more worryingly out-battled.
    Robins really did a number on Warne tonight and they deserve to stay up.
    We looked scared to death, especially in the first 20 minutes.

    No excuses against Brum on Sunday, I don't mind losing if we at least turn up and put a bit of a show on.
    Tired or not, today was unacceptable.

    I thought we played really well tonight. Rotherham we not at there best and did look tired in places but Robins got the game plan down to perfection. The high line worked well and we didn't put a foot wrong all game.

    The players really stood up to the challenge tonight. One more win!
