Blackburn Rovers face a big game in their pursuit of a Championship play-off place on Monday night, as they host Lancashire rivals Preston North End at Ewood Park.
Having seen their four-game unbeaten run in the league come to an end with a 1-0 defeat at QPR last weekend, Tony Mowbray’s side go into this game six points off the play-off places, and under some pressure to prove they can compete in the race for the top-six .
By contrast, Preston go into the game having won just one of their last seven games in all competitions, nine points adrift of the playoff places.
Perhaps with that in mind, Mowbray has named a side that shows two changes from last time out, with Bradley Dack and Barry Douglas replacing Harvey Elliott and Amari’i Bell, who both drop to the bench.
Taking to Twitter to react to that team news, plenty of Blackburn fans were keen to have their say on their side’s starting lineup.
Here, we take a look at what some of those supporters had to say.

I’d take a scruffy 1-0 now.
