Fresh from the Paulaner pondering at the Oktoberfest, where we reminded them of who put the ball in the Munich net, it was back to the Doombar deliberations at the Harvester to face our local rivals, Blackburn Rovers.

Both teams were on the same points and a close-fought match was in prospect, played in a good atmosphere. No prisoners were expected to be taken.

Apart from a couple of injuries, Phil Parkinson seems to be settling down with his team selection and the only change was the return of David Wheater for Marc Wilson.

No quarter was asked and no quarter was given as both teams went at it, with referee Darren Bond doing well to keep things under control.

Blackburn tucked away their only chance of the match as the ball fell kindly for Bradley Dack in the first half, with Remi Matthews having little else to do during the whole match.

The few chances we had were well saved by David Raya. The final ball was poor with consequently not enough being created.

We deserved a point but if you don’t score, you aren’t going to get many points.

So, after 12 matches, we’ve had a reasonable start, certainly better than most people had predicted.

The early wins gave us a bit of a cushion while the new players are bedding in.

We’ve had to start again with virtually a new squad and this takes time.

Only three of the starting XI were with us last season and two of them were not regulars.

We’ve lost two members of the first-team squad since the start of the season, however, I think we have a stronger squad with better cover, once everyone is up to speed.

Our development and younger teams continue to do well.

But, it is now one goal in five matches and this is concerning as we had a similar spell last season when we opted out of scoring for eight matches. We’ve got to find that cutting edge.

There has been some fuss about more winding-up orders this week but until our cash flow improves, we’re going to have to accept these as part of modern-day financial dealings.

Businesses will pay debts at the latest possible time and creditors will raise winding-up petitions to encourage the debts to be paid sooner.

On and off the field, we need to stick together.
