Saltzburg Preview


Recommended Posts

Match Preview by ossiejones.

Rovers go into tonights game against Saltzburg all square after their 2-2 draw in Austria, however Rovers have never won a game in the EUFA cup.

We certainly have come close; including the memorable 3-3 in Sofia, after Thompson, Ostenstad and Duff putting Rovers 3 up a couple of years ago. And at Celtic park, in the very net round we totally battered the hoops for 85 minutes, playing the best football of the Souness regime, only to suffer a late Larsson winner.

These were only the latest instalments of a fairly pathetic run of games in this competition, which started in our title season with a game against Swedish minnows Trelleborgs. A 0-1 home defeat in the first leg, despite once again dominating the game, Rovers were apparently home and hosed in the second leg at 2-1 up until they scored another late equalizer to go through 3-2 on aggregate.

Then more heroics in Lyon followed, but again they were ultimately in vain as 2-2 was just enough for the French to progress.

Although a 0-0 or 1-1 draw would see them through to the group stage, could this be the night that European history is made at Ewood when they win their first UEFA Cup game.

With FREE ENTRY to season ticket holders and competitively priced tickets for the walk on fans. £15 Adults and £5 for Juniors there should be a reasonable sized crowd at Ewood to cheer the team on and hopefully see history made at Ewood.

Kick off 7-45pm.
