Must be brilliant tactics from Warbs to come from behind to lead 3-1 with ten men. Fantastic for a team to do that. Well done the players and manager
Come on you Sooopa ........

That was a pleasant surprise. We are on quite a run of form. And 50 points reached with 9 games to go.

Amos and Chair coming on in the second half, together with a change of formation to a diamond midfield really worked. Never let it be said that Warburton doesn't have a plan B.

Look forward to seeing Manning and Eze's goals. Both are beautifully executed.

Just watched Final Score for the first time in ages, every time they went to a non Prem match they would then breathlessly say “and it's STRAIGHT back to the Premiership” as if they are doing us a favour by deigning to comment on a mere Championship game.

Excellent result especially after going one down and losing Cameron.

A shame we will lose so many in the summer because with a little more consistency we would be in with a shout

I must make special mention of Grant Hall who had a heroic second half. Not only did he score our first but was an absolute beast in defence after Cameron was sent off. He won 14 aerials which is a big stat. Possibly his best performance of the season and he'll have given the management something to think about given his contract is up in the summer.

I expect Steptoe won't be able to post, regarding the praise he would have undoubtedly showered this performance with, due to having to self isolate.

The prick will be furious we came back from a goal behind.

he is not a LB...by the way 3-1 up now... aniclap
Disagree, i think he's a L1 centre midfielder and L2 Left midfielder but i think he might be a premier league left back. He's raw, when he has a bad game, he has a really bad game but i think he's extremely promising in the role and can get forward with the best of them. Another player our fans seem really keen to get on the back of.

He’s NOT a left back. He’s a striker 😃

Despite being at Rangers for over 5 years now, Ryan Manning may not have claimed a position as his own. Although he's played his best football for us this season at LB there continues to be nagging doubts about him there. This was shown in today's game. In the first half we saw his positional weaknesses as he was beaten time and again by diagonal passes. In the second he was better defensively and showed what he can do going forward. His goal was sublime.

Left back, wing back, defensive midfield, attacking midfield, left midfield, even striker - he's played there for Ireland's U23s. We've all got a position for Manning, but it seems he's not got one for himself.

In our setup, I’d play Manning Left Mid, instead of Pugh. Problem is, Wallace isn’t up to it so we need a good left back if we are to move Manning. Manning Left Mid, with Bright right mid, Eze as the 10, and Ball and Cameron as the holding mids, and then introduce Chair/Amos as we are doing, is a good setup.

My only concern about Wallace would be his fitness. If we want him to play as a traditional left back I think he is more than capable, but in the modern game we expect a lot more from our 'full backs' and I don't think he has that in his game - in part due to his age.
