To be honest I was a little apprehensive over Saturday's encounter at The New Den, just wondering how we wwould cope after missing Grabban, and then to find Bassong was also missing just added to the hang wringing. I should not have worried one little atom.
An excellent professional display lead surpremely by Howson and Hoolahan that is not saying the other players didn't play their part, I just selected those two as they stood out a tiny bit more at the end. Was pleased to see Hooper get on the sheet no matter it was from the spot, it still had to be scored and did anyone miss the excelent dummy he sold to leave Howson with a simple tap in..
It keeps being said that this must carry on into the next game and none more than Saturday's Oppenents Derby County, they may be finding life a little tougher right now so let's make it even harder by sending them home with nowt but long faces.
We mentioned missing Grabban there appears a little rumour doing the rounds that City and Derby County are lining up to take Blackburn's goal Machine Jordan Rhodes on loan , or so the Telegraph will have us believe.
I honestly do not know, I would not imagine for one second David McNally and Alex Neil would have let one word of this slip out anywhere. With the prospect of Grabban being out for the rest of the season it may well have some milage in it
