A great game for us

Simon Eastwood believes Saturday's FA Cup match with Swansea City is a match the players and fans can savour.

Rovers take on a Swans side currently 9th in the Premier League, and whilst the goalkeeper knows it won't be easy as they bid to put their name in the hat for the fifth round draw, he feels it can be a tie for all to enjoy.

"I think it is a good game for us, one that the lads are looking forward to," said Eastwood.

"It will definitely be a tough game because we know what they can do. They are a solid Premier League side now so we've just got to do what we do - try and compete, give 100 per cent and see where it goes.

"It is one of those where the lads can go into it as a game that they can enjoy because not too much expected of us.

"Everyone knows that our main priority is the league but it would be nice to have a little run in the cup too."

Eastwood believes Rovers can take confidence into the cup clash from the way they played against Manchester City in the competition last season.

"We go into every game to win," added the 25-year-old. "Last season we thought we'd have a good chance against Manchester City as it is only 11 v 11 at the end of the day.

"The lads are all confident in their own ability and as a team we stick together. If it is Swansea, Man City, Derby, whoever it is we always believe that we can win every game, but with it being the FA Cup it is another good thing as well because you never know what is going to happen.

"Hopefully on Saturday we can do well and give a good account of ourselves."
