Rovers Under-18s have been handed a home tie in the fourth round of the FA Youth Cup against Arsenal.

Mike Sheron’s side will host the Gunners, with a date and time to be confirmed in due course.

It is a repeat from last term, with Rovers emphatically brushing aside the Londoners in the quarter-finals of the competition.

Sam Burns hit a brace, with goals from D'Margio Wright-Phillips and Luke Brennan coming in-between, as Rovers sensationally earned a 4-1 win at Ewood Park back in March.

In this season's tournament, Rovers edged past Carlisle United in round three, with Georgie Gent's super strike the difference in a 1-0 win for Sheron's youngsters at Brunton Park.

Elsewhere, Arsenal earned a 2-1 win at Rotherham United earlier this week to book their place in the next round of the competition.

Exeter City v Leicester City or Sheffield Wednesday
