BBC Sport - FA Cup: Blackburn boss Gary Bowyer ahead of Liverpool visit

'Rovers nearly had kit man on bench'

Blackburn Rovers manager Gary Bowyer jokes his Liverpool counterpart will not "lose any sleep over which internationals" will replace his suspended players.

Bowyer says in comparison his Rovers side were looking at "either the kit man or laundry lady" to start on the bench, such is their depleted squad.

He adds the Reds' recent poor form in the league "doesn't kid" his side as they prepare for the FA Cup sixth round replay on Wednesday.
