Robbo hoping Carling Cup continues to be kind

Rovers keeper Paul Robinson is keeping his fingers crossed that he enjoys more luck in the English League Cup - a competition that has been kind to him over the years.

Robbo has won the trophy once, scored in the competition and has been a penalty shoot out hero over the years so it is no suprise he is optimistic ahead of the games against Villa that might seal a trip to Wembley.

Robbo, speaking to Rovers.co.uk said - "I enjoy the Carling Cup. I scored a goal in this competition, I won it in 2008 and this year I`ve ended up saving a couple of penalties.

"To get back to Wembley and to have the chance of winning it again would be very nice for me.

"We`re at home first, which isn`t really kind to us but at the end of the day, it`s a semi-final and a great chance to get to Wembley.

"It would be huge for us to get there. We managed to avoid the two Manchester teams in the draw but it`s going to be tough against Aston Villa."

Lets hope that we do a little bit better against the Villa than the Reserves match yesterday!

What happens in the two legs will define our season, I just hope we get the right result at home and with that bit of luck we can get something away. Come on Rovers and give us a trip to wembley!

The second away leg is a problem, though.. Villa park is a horrible place to play in.
