Rovers' youngsters get their FA Youth Cup campaign underway this evening when they take on Cardiff City.

The opening match for David Lowe's Under-18s in this season's competition sees them make the long journey to the Cardiff City Stadium for the third round encounter.

Rovers go into the game in good heart having a win and a draw in their last two matches. Friday afternoon saw the youngsters defeat Newcastle United 4-1.

"We are really looking forward to going down to Cardiff to play at their magnificent stadium," said Lowe ahead of the game.

"We have had them watched and have had reports on them. I have also seen them recently against Crystal Palace.

"We know it will be a tough encounter for us but we go into the game with plenty of confidence after a win and a draw in our last two games.

"We also know that we will have to be at our best against a well organised Cardiff City team."

Supporters who are making the journey should note that admission prices are £3 Adults and £1 concessions. Car parking is available for free around the stadium.

Rovers Player will provide live audio commentary of the game from 6.50pm.
