Rovers to face Blackpool in FA Cup

17 January 2017

Rovers will play Blackpool in the fourth round of the Emirates FA Cup.

After booking their place following a comfortable 2-1 away win over Queens Park Rangers ten days ago, Rovers they will now face Gary Bowyer's side who overcame Barnsley after extra-time in their third round replay at Oakwell.

There have been four previous meetings with Blackpool in the competition, with Rovers winning three and drawing one. The most recent meeting was during the famous 1959-60 season when Rovers defeated the Seasiders 3-0 in a replay at Bloomfield Road, en route to reaching the final!

The match at Ewood Park will take place over the weekend of the 28th/29th January. A confirmed date, along with ticketing arrangements, will be confirmed in due course.
