Always nice to have a good cup run, who will ever forget the run to the quarter finals a few years ago now. The Championship is more important and with a small squad Rovers really can't afford more injuries to a small squad.

I would like a decent run this season. Would really like an away draw against one of the really big Premier League sides.
