Robbo hoping Carling Cup continues to be kind

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.

Blackburn Confirm Caddis Arrival

Caddis, who left Bury at the end of a short deal, was given his chance due to his previous with Blackburn boss Mowbray at Celtic. But the ex-Birmingham full back has secured a deal.

Samuel Signing Sealed

Blackburn have signed Reading forward Dominic Samuel, who once worked with Mowbray at Coventry - also loaned to Colchester, Dagenham and Gillingham, ending last season at Ipswich.

Just Saying, But What If....

Blackburn will do well under the boss. However, for arguments sake, if Rovers didn't secure an instant Championship return what would happen to Mowbray?

Caddis At The Double

Caddis has now spent the past three weeks with Blackburn, joining the club in Austria last week, and Mowbray, his boss at Celtic earlier in his career, is close to making his decision.
