Waking up at 4am to follow a cup draw wasn’t proving to be the most exciting thing, until Rovers were drawn away against ball number 2 – Arsenal.
The last time these two teams met was during the League Cup of 2005 where it was a 2-2 draw at the then Belle Vue.
Rovers managed to then keep the likes of Robin Van Persie from scoring which helped them make it to extra time until Arsene Wenger’s men won on penalties.
Goals for Rovers on that day came from Michael McIndoe and Paul Green. The only remaining squad member from that game is obviously, James Coppinger. He’ll certainly be wanting to get his revenge for that game!
Rovers will travel to The Emirates stadium week commencing 18th September.
