Rovers are currently 10th in League One and the 1994/95 Premier League champions are looking to get back to England’s second tier at the first time of asking following relegation last season.
Blackburn have won the FA Cup on six different occasions: 1884, 1885, 1886, 1890, 1891 & 1928
It will be the first ever meeting between the two sides and Head Coach Rossi Eames is looking forward to the occasion.
“It will be a good test for our side, coming up against one of England’s most historic teams”
“Blackburn are a good side with a big fan base and we’ll have to be at our very best. Hopefully, both our players and supporters will be looking forward to it.”
The tie will be played on the weekend of November 4th and ticket information for this game will be released in the near future.
