A blow to miss out

6 March 2015

Shane Duffy will be a frustrated observer at Anfield on Sunday.

The Republic of Ireland international, and former Everton defender, misses out on a Merseyside return due to injury.

Duffy will be out for the rest of the season after undergoing an operation on a knee injury sustained in training last Thursday, so will have to cheer Rovers on from the sidelines against Liverpool.

"It was the first thing I thought about when I had the injury," Duffy told Rovers Player.

"I hadn't been playing too much in the league but I had been in the cup so I had a chance of playing. But that's football, it wasn't meant for me to play so I'm disappointed.

"If I can go somewhere I can sit, either up in the stands or with the away fans then i'll try my best to get there.

"All of us have done well in the cup this year, we've had three tough draws and we've fully deserved to be there and have been rewarded with a nice draw against Liverpool.

"So I'm 100% behind them and hopefully we can go on and spring a surprise.

"Like the last two rounds no-one except us thinks we'll win so do the same again. They re a good team obviously, but we'll make it interesting for them."
