Work-rate and determination the key to getting a surprise cup result says midfielder.

Whilst knowing that Saturday's match against Arsenal will be one of the toughest fixtures this weekend, Jason Lowe still believes that Rovers can go there and cause a cup upset.

The Lancashire club travel to the capital in good form, arriving at the Emirates on a run of just one defeat from their previous ten outings.

Lowe knows that hard work and determination will be the key to getting a result in the FA Cup 5th round tie, and feels that it is something Rovers can achieve.

"Personally I want to go to the game and I want to win," said Lowe.

"We're under no illusions, we know it is going to be a tough, tough game.

"Away at Arsenal I think any team would tell you that. But we'll be going there looking to win, certainly."

Lowe knows that Saturday's game could follow a similar pattern to the one Rovers experienced on Tuesday night against Brighton when the opposition enjoyed the majority of the possession and chances.

Rovers dug deep to earn a point at the Amex Stadium and they'll have to do the same at the Emirates.

"We always want to play well and want to get the ball down and pass it, but sometimes you have to concede that and do the other side which is to dig in, be organised and have the required work-rate," added the midfielder.

"That is what we've got in abundance at the moment, it is making us hard to beat. So we can take that into the Arsenal game, give it our best shot and we'll see what happens."

Tickets for Saturday's game have now all sold out so why not listen to full match commentary on Rovers Player.
