    After the disappointing loss at Fulham, a win in this cup tie would do wonders for getting things back on track. This is the first of two games in a row with Boro, though it could be said that this one is slightly more important since a win here puts us within reach of winning our first trophy since 2002.

    Pedersen looks to miss out after taking a beating last time out, but it looks like Bellamy and Nelsen are in contention to be back in the team. Nelsen's presence should help shore up a defense that has been all too leaky of late.

    A nice pre-game report by Mike Olford that was on my mailing list...

    Savage goal disallowed because of a foul by Dickov.

    That would have been huge going into the half.

    Kuqi's shot is deflected, but Dickov gets on the end of it to put Rovers up 1-0 going into four minutes of stoppage time.

    hold this lead, damn it!

    It's all over, 1-0 Rovers, and on to the semis we go. :)

    Doncaster v. Arsenal
    [result]Doncaster just went up 2-1 in ET. If they can hold on, I'd be glad to draw them.[/result]

    Semifinal draw is.....

    Rovers v. Man U
    Arsenal v. Wigan


    I'm pulling for Wigan to get through that tie, and not just because they might be more even with us than Arsenal. A final between us and them would be a huge breath of fresh air, much like Boro and Bolton in the League Cup final a couple of seasons ago.

    I am not already defeated about our boys against Manutd.; we did already beat them earlier this year. Actually, FoxSportsWorld is reprising that match on Xmas day ~ noonish.

    I'm hoping for Wigan as well... and not just 'cause I'm in love with Stephane Henchoz (tee hee hee).

    Here's the drawing:

    11 Jan, 20h - Bburn V Manutd (at Ewood)

    25 Jan, 20h - Manutd V Wigan (at Old Trafford)

    It will be lovely if FoxSportsWorld is covering the events!
