Rovers more than matched Southampton and Palace but sadly their only reward was a solitary point, which has done little to ease relegation worries.
Rovers put up a very spirited performance against Palace and managed to fight back in a game they really did not deserve to be behind.
Praise has to be given to Saunders for extensive usage of his squad, with forgotten men Paul Keegan and Chris Brown playing their part in a solid team performance.
Birmingham provide the opposition tomorrow as Rovers continue with their gruelling week and the key to success will be how quiet they can keep Marlon King.
I am backing Rovers to secure a crucial victory.
Prediction: Rovers 2 Birmingham 1
