Game for an upset

8 March 2015

Gary Bowyer believes the pressure is all on the home side when Rovers take on Liverpool in this afternoon's Sunday showdown - kick-off 4.00pm.

After beating Charlton Athletic 2-1 in the third round of the FA Cup, Rovers really caught the eye with a 3-1 win over Swansea City, backed up by their impressive 4-1 demolition of Stoke City in the last round.

Underdogs once more as Rovers travel to Anfield to tackle the Reds, Bowyer knows no-one outside the camp gives the Lancashire club a chance, but they can use that to their advantage.

"I think outside of our dressing room nobody gives us a chance," said the Rovers boss. "It is a really David verses Goliath match.

"It is a massive game for an upset and that is what we have got to try to do.

"The pressure is off us, the players have got the freedom to go out and enjoy themselves and go and play.

"We know that we will have to work very hard, we are going to have to be very disciplined and very organised, but we don't want to just make a day of it, we want to show people that we've got some good footballers in the squad and that we can carry a threat.

"It is a game of football between two teams, you look at the cup upsets this year and we are looking to add to that.

"We've got a plan and we are going to try and execute it, we aren't going there just to have a good day out."
