Danny Graham - Make it a great day

19 February 2017

Danny Graham can't wait to come up against some of the biggest names in world football when Rovers take on Manchester United this Sunday afternoon.

A place in the quarter-finals of the Emirates FA Cup is up for grabs when the two famous clubs go head-to-head at Ewood Park later today and the Rovers striker is champing at the bit to be involved.

Graham knows it will be far from easy against the Premier League giants, but believes that with a strong home backing from the blue and white faithful anything is possible.

"You never know, it is the FA Cup, it is a one-off tie and anything can happen," said Graham.

"It is going to be a great day and hopefully we can go out there and give a good account of ourselves.

"It is a massive opportunity, we are going to put ourselves up against one of the best teams in Europe and everyone is looking forward to it.

"Hopefully it will be close to a full house and that the fans can get right behind us.

"As a footballer you want to test yourselves against the best week-in, week-out and we've got the chance to do that on Sunday. Hopefully the lads won't let anyone down.

"We can go and enjoy it, it is a good distraction away from the league, it is a one-off game and hopefully we can pull a cup shock off on Sunday.

"Obviously the Blackpool game was a potential banana-skin with them being in League Two and us in the Championship. So it will be nice to go into the game as underdogs against a big club and see what we are made of."
