Scott Dann believes that the magic of the cup is alive and well.

There have been a host of shocks already in this season's FA Cup with Budweiser and the  defender is hopeful that Rovers can pull off another one by defeating Arsenal at the Emirates.

Dann is under no illusions of the task that lies ahead for Rovers, but with the team in good form, he feels it is something that can be done.

"It is a game to look forward to, it is against a top team, at a top stadium," Dann told Rovers Player.

"Obviously it gives us a change, we've had a quite a number of league games so it takes our mind off the league for a days. It is a game we are all very much looking forward to.

"Going to a place like Arsenal is a tough afternoon at the best of times, it is going to take a big ask to get a result there.

"But with the way we've been playing recently and the results we've been getting, we go there with confidence and know that anything can happen in the FA Cup.

"We'd like to go as far as we can in the competition, you never know what can happen on the day, anyone can go to anywhere and win as has been shown in the past."
