Paul Lambert believes the Emirates FA Cup tie with West Ham United will be a match to savour.
After Rovers defeated Oxford United in the fourth round, they were drawn to face either Liverpool or West Ham in round five.
Tuesday night's extra-time win by the Hammers means an Ewood Park match up with the east London club, with the Rovers boss hoping for a strong home backing on Sunday 21st February.
"It is brilliant, really good," said Lambert when asked about the draw. "Whether it was Liverpool or West Ham it was always going to be a really tough game.
"Slaven Bilic has gone in there and in his short time he has done fantastically well.
"So it is great for us, we'll hopefully get a full house and it will be rocking and I'm looking forward to see that and i'm looking forward to the game."
Tickets for the Ewood cup tie are on open sale right now priced at just £20 for Adults, £12 for Seniors/18-21yrs and just £5 for Juniors aged 17 and under.
