Report of match 22nd January 2002
Reporter Footymad Previewer
This was a game of two halves a few twists and a lot of gritSouness described guiding Rovers to their first major final in 42 years as "right up there" with anything from his glory days with Liverpool.
"It was a fairly dramatic game and certainly not short on entertainment," he said. Thank goodness we can now concentrate on the league again Terry Yorath
"The sending off did change the game and stranger things have happened, but we continued to push them back and Andy scored with arguably his most difficult chance of the match.
"But overall it was a great night for us because you don't get to a cup final too often in your career."
