Rovers to face Newport County

7 December 2015

Rovers have been drawn away to League Two side Newport County in the third round of the Emirates FA Cup.

The tie will take place at Rodney Parade over the weekend the 9th/10th January 2016 and will be the first ever meeting between the two teams.
 
John Sheridan's side required a replay to see off Brackley in the first round. Following a 2-2 draw away from home, Newport romped to a 4-1 win in the replay. 
 
The South Wales outfit then won 1-0 away at Barnet in the second round on Saturday.
 
Rovers produced some magical moments in last season's competition, defeating Premier League sides Swansea City and Stoke City, before pushing Liverpool right to the wire in a quarter-final replay at Ewood Park, having held the Merseyside giants to a goalless draw at Anfield.
