Home draw for Rovers

5 January 2015

Rovers have been handed a home tie against Premier League Swansea City in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

Gary Bowyer's Rovers reached this stage of the competition courtesy of Saturday's 2-1 away win over Charlton Athletic, whilst Swansea were comfortable 6-2 winners away at Tranmere Rovers.
