Blackburn Rovers will be looking to return to winning ways this evening, as they travel to Deepdale to face Preston North End in a Lancashire derby.
Victory for Tony Mowbray’s side could see them climb into the top ten in the Championship table, and would end their seven-game winless run against their local rivals.
But with North End having picked up their first home win of the season with a 1-0 win over Sheffield Wednesday at the weekend, this may not be an easy task for Rovers.
Going into the game, Mowbray has made three changes -two enforced – from the side that came from a goal down to draw 1-1 with Luton Town at Kenilworth Road on Saturday.
Ryan Nyambe replaces the injured Joe Rankin-Costello at right-back, and Lewis Holtby makes a timely return from illness in the centre of midfield, with Bradley Johnson suspended after picking up a fifth yellow card of the season on Saturday.
There is also one change in attack, where Sam Gallagher, who came off the bench to equalise on Saturday, replaces on loan Liverpool winger Harvey Elliott.
Taking to Twitter to react to that teams news, plenty of Blackburn fans were keen to give their opinion on their side’s starting lineup for the game, with the inclusion of Gallagher a particular talking point.
Here, we take a look at what some of them had to say.
YESSS Holtby is back! 🇩🇪 maestro
