Not a bad draw although would of prefered a home one. But even so, its a chance to progress if we play well. As for Burnley... unlucky.

Not a bad draw, still think that Sunderland are pretty average......think we'll score one or two over there n cant see them creating much....away win!!!!

It will be a tough game for us. Cold Wednesday night, bitter wind blowing of the Wear, and all that. Would have preferred a home game (echoing many peoples opinion), but you play the cards your dealt. Rovers should be in the hat for the 5th round. Would love to see Burnley provide an upset (he said trying not to laugh...)
