Tricky FA Cup draw for the Rovers

Rovers have been drawn away to Premier League rival Aston Villa in a tough tie in the 3rd round of the FA Cup.

rovers will have been hoping for a home draw but will head in the trip safe in the knowledge they have already beaten VIlla this season - 2-1 at Ewood Park.

In a round which didn't exactly have an inspiring match to be called the 'plum' tie, neutrals will probably be keen to know that Kettering or Leeds will be away to Man United and Liverpool travel to Reading.

At least we arent at home to Coventry though!

You got to beat some good teams to be in with a shout of winning so lets have a go and see where it gets us. Would have prefered home draw but ah well!
Mikey Delap
Yup, pleased ours is at home, tough one though, as we found out at your gaff earlier this season!
The Fear
thats right Fear... dont underestimate us! lol
Mikey Delap
no, I think our lot did that last time and got what they deserved for the arrogance of thinking they only had to turn up to win.
The Fear
that is pretty much true that fear, hopefully you'll make the same mistake twice again, three is there is a replay lol ;)
Mikey Delap
eh we beat the buggers once with 10 men should be a walk in the park lol

lol we have had a fair bit of luck in cup draws lately, so a tricky 1 was due.....im sure we will give it a good shot

Villa have improved since we last met but maybe they will be more focused on PL because of their excellent position.. that being said, we should also be focusing on PL points and i will not be overly disappointed when we only win this game 1-0

With our away record i was hoping for a home draw - still you've got to beat the best to become cup-winners! Can you believe Manure's luck as well!

Not the draw I would've wanted but it's what we've got so we have to embrace it lol!!
