Prediction League: Rovers fan Martin Hall gives his verdict on relegation

If you had said back in the dark days of the 1990s that we would have had four seasons in the second tier of English football, I would have said you were mad!

Saturday’s unfortunate defeat against Portsmouth saw our destiny sealed and relegation a certainty - but what great memories from the Championship!

Given our promotion in 2008 many asked the question would the crowds follow?

They did in the first season but through hard economic times the number of season ticket holders dwindled.

With a business model losing millions, we had to cash in on talents such as Mills, Wellens and more recently Sharp just to keep afloat.

The Championship is still cash rich. Rovers were always fighting against the tide.
