Teamwork was the key

Rudy Gestede was delighted to play his part in a great team performance in the FA Cup quarter-final draw with Liverpool.

The Rovers striker worked tirelessly up front at Anfield on Sunday, never giving the Reds' defenders a moment's peace as the match ended goalless.

The Benin international felt hard work and focus was key to their success as they fully deserved to take Liverpool to a replay at Ewood Park next month.

"It is a good feeling, we have the chance to play against them again so everybody is happy," Gestede told Rovers Player.

"To be fair we had a few chances, one with Baps, amazing save from Mignolet, and one from Craig Conway in the first half.

"Maybe with a little bit more quality or more chance we could have had a better result, but I think we are happy for what we have done.

"It was a tough game, we worked hard, we kept our shape and stayed focused, but it is going to be a different game at home.

"Everybody was working hard and fighting for each other - that is a good feeling. It is one of our strengths in the team, any player can play and we know they are going to work hard and help your partner.

"It was a tough game and we have heavy legs now, but we are going to rest and be focused on Wednesday. We've got Bolton, the league is important, we've got the play-offs to catch up and we've got our chance to play."

Tickets for Wednesday's match against Bolton will be on sale until the 7.45pm kick-off. Prices are from £21 for Adults, from £13 for Seniors and Students, and from just £8 for Juniors aged 16 and under.

Why not avoid the matchday queues and book online at and collect from the Roverstore collection point.
