Tricky FA Cup draw for the Rovers

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!

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.

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!
