Home tie for Rovers if they make it through

Rovers will take on Manchester United or Swansea if they make it through to the fourth round of the FA Cup.

The draw for the fourth round took place at Wembley this afternoon, and Rovers were handed a home tie against one of the Premier League sides, who face off this afternoon.

Rovers still need to get past both Crawley and Birmingham if they are to make it through to the fourth round.

Rovers and Crawley drew 0-0 at the Memorial Stadium on December 7th, but the replay on December 18th was abandoned on 74 minutes due to torrential rain and a water-logged pitch.

The replay of the replay was then called off yesterday because of the continued bad weather, and will now be played on Wednesday, January 8th.

The winner of that game will take on Birmingham at St Andrews the following week. 

The fourth round ties will be played the weekend of January 25th and 26th.
