Rovers meet Villa again

Rovers meet Villa again

Things just got tough for the Rovers in the Carling Cup as today's third round draw has seen the Ewood side paired with Aston Villa.

In a repeat of last year's classic semi final which Villa won 7-4 on aggregate, Rovers will have a chance at revenge - but will feel a tad disappointed to have been drawn away.

But the match is a one off on the road to Wembley and it is a chance to knock a direct rival out.

It's a shame they were knocked out of the Europa League, they would've played a more weakened team if they were. Still, to win a cup you have to beat the best, I am confident that we can beat them.

Hoping for revenge this season as they're not playing too well. A lot of prem teams been drawn together so looks like a very good chance to get far in the tournament again hopefully.
