Rovers' development squad will be out to claim a place in the final of the Molson Coors Senior Cup when they take on Fleetwood Town this Tuesday evening.

A summer final against Liverpool await the winners of tonight's tie that takes place at Ewood Park - kick-off 7.00pm.

After receiving a bye for the first round of the competition, Damien Johnson's side defeated Oldham Athletic 2-1 in round two thanks to goals from Connor Mahoney and Connor Thomson.

That set up a quarter-final clash with Southport, and after Lewis Mansell had scored a brilliant equaliser, goalkeeper Andy Fisher was the hero in the resulting penalty shootout, saving three spot-kicks to send the Rovers through.

Fleetwood have played in every round on their way to their last four clash with Rovers.

They started with a 1-0 win over Blackpool and followed that up a penalty shootout win over Wigan Athletic. They faced Morecambe in their quarter-final, defeating the Shrimps 4-0.

Season ticket holders can see tonight's match for free on production of their season ticket cards. General admission prices are £3 Adults, £1 Concessions.

The Jack Walker Lower will be open.
