Make home advantage count

7 April 2015

Markus Olsson believes the team can take confidence and courage from the way they have performed against Premier League teams in this season's FA Cup campaign.

As Rovers prepare to face Liverpool in their quarter-final replay tomorrow night, the Swede is eager for another impressive home display to help book a semi-final date at Wembley.

Rovers have already beaten top flight opposition in Swansea and Stoke on their way to the last eight of the competition, and after holding the Reds to a goalless draw at Anfield last month, Olsson hopes home advantage can play it's part once more.

"We've had so many games since the first Liverpool match that we haven't really been thinking about it," admitted Olsson.

"All of the lads did well in this game, we've been doing well in the cup this season, and hopefully we can put in the same performance.

"It isn't going to be an easy game, Liverpool are a very good team, but we play well at home, we are strong at home and we have shown that against Premier League teams this season as well."

The prize for victory on Wednesday night is a Wembley semi-final against Aston Villa, and with Olsson having never played there, it is a huge incentive for him and the rest of the players.

"Wembley is one game away, everyone at the club wants it, the players, the staff and the supporters it will be something that would be good for the club.

"I've never been there, it is something that would be a great to play at Wembley. Hopefully we will give them a good game, you never know what can happen."
