QPR away in FA Cup

5 December 2016

Rovers have been drawn away to Championship rivals QPR in the third round of the FA Cup.

The tie will take place at Loftus Road on the weekend of the 7th/8th January 2017.

It was honours even in the league meeting between Rovers and Rangers at Loftus Road earlier this season, as a Sam Gallagher header cancelled out Tjaronn Chery's free-kick back in September.

The last time the two teams met in the FA Cup was also at the third round stage, when Rovers ran out 1-0 winners at Ewood Park in January 2011.

Junior Hoilett, who would later join the Hoops, scored the only goal of the game, whilst Rovers skipper Jason Lowe made his debut for the club. 
 
The only other FA Cup clash between the clubs was also a third round tie at Ewood Park and again Rovers advanced to the fourth round, winning 3-0 in January 2006 thanks to a superb Craig Bellamy brace and a goal from Andy Todd.
