I had a horrible feeling before the game about this one, the sun newspaper in their betting column did a big piece on Rovers which I always see as a bad sign (they tipped us to win league 1 at the start of the season) then Harry Redknapp also tipped us in the same paper for a win. At half time I wondered what my problem was 1-0 up everyone else losing we was in a play off spot win the game in hand and three points off the top, then it all went wrong! when are we going to close down people once they get into our half? we don't have any problems from set pieces but why are we happy for players to run at us and have a clear shot from 20 yards +? how many goals have we conceded in recent weeks like this ? keogh ran from his own half,both rotherham goals from outside the area and now both carlisle goals from outside the area. And once again we play for 45 minutes when are we going to turn up for both halves? I think this defeat as been coming whats happened to the best defence in league 1? 9 goals against in 4 games, I think maybe we need a more authorative keeper to make the defenders stop these clear shots at goal, Ben smith's been doing a gods job but we need a more experienced keeper to help the young lad out. Mr O' Driscoll get on the phone and ring Mr Wise at Leeds and get Sullivan for the rest of the season at least. Sorry rant over.

We either need to score more goals when we dominate as much as we have been doing, or we need to stop falling asleep and letting teams back in. We play at our best when we're losing.
