Buzzing to progress

16 February 2015

Adam Henley hopes Rovers are handed another home draw after reaching the last eight of the FA Cup.

For the second time in this season's competition Rovers knocked out Premier League opposition, following up their 3-1 win over Swansea City with an even more impressive performance in defeating Stoke City 4-1.

"I think after that performance we'd welcome anyone to Ewood Park," the defender told Radio Rovers.

"We are all buzzing with the win and just happy to be in the next round.

"After the Swansea game all the lads believed that we could give Stoke a really good run for their money.

"In the first half it was poor to concede that first goal so early but we didn't let it get to us and we bounced back quickly.

"We had a game plan and we stuck to it, I thought it was a great performance by the lads today. They couldn't get to grips with the way we played and Josh exposed them really well.

"There was no pressure on us, no-one expected us to go and turn them over like we did, so it gives the team loads of confidence and when you've got that you can do anything.

"It is fantastic for us and the fans to put on a performance like that."

The draw for the quarter-finals takes place on BBC1 on Monday evening at approximately 7.35pm. Rovers are ball number six.
