That should focus the attention of everyone involved, fair chance the game might be selected for live broadcast too...come on Rovers, give us another game to savour and remember!

Great tie. Our biggest game ever at TNL? But unfortunately we have to get past Exeter. What a shame we couldn’t hold on to 3-2

We have been here before, remember Rochdale and Rotherham? Exeter last time I looked play in the same division as us so following this through, beat Exeter, draw at home with WBA live on TV, hopefully BBC, FGR takes publicity and a 4th round tie to a whole new level.

Paul Tisdale is a legend but not sure about his neckerchief unless of course your going to a Wurzels gig and Somerset ain't that far from Devon. Lets make hay while the suns still shining, COME ON YOU ROVERS!

Anyone know who Alan Pardew is by the way?

I do.
He's one of those managers that you hope your club will never sign!

He would need to ask permission to play him, which would be unlikely to be granted.

An excellent home draw for either Exeter or FGR.
Are not WBA the nearest Premiership team to both their lower division rivals?
Good news for the travelling supporters.

If he already has permission to play he is eligible, because whilst a player registered in the Premier League cannot play for his loan club against his parent club in the PL he can in cup competitions. But again it depends whether WBA gave permission for Fitzwater to play in the FA Cup when he signed on loan. If not then one suspects they would not give permission now. But if already agreed they would not be able to stop it happening.

Only the club can truthfully answer your query. I am only giving the overview.

We haven't got a home draw v WBA, we have got an away replay in Devon on Tuesday.

Mind you, if we win in Devon, beat WBA, and then beat the next 4? teams we're drawn against then we're in with a chance of winning the damned thing. sorry. Getting ahead of myself there.

Good draw for whoever wins the replay.

Re Fitzwater he played in the first round Vs Macc so I imagine he will be eligible if at the club. I'm less sure about when his loan ends and whether he will even be at the club in the date of the tie. For what its worth I hope he is. But having played for FGR in the FA Cup he will not be eligible for WBA in the same competition as far as I understand.

About FGR

We’re a club that looks to the future, but our identity is forged from a rich 128-year history. Founded in 1889, we’re one of the oldest football clubs in the world.

In 2017, we were promoted to the Football League for the first time in our history – which means we can spread our sustainability message to an even bigger audience. FIFA recently described us as the greenest football club in the world. That’s quite an accolade, and it shows how we’ve been able to bring together football and environmental consciousness at the highest levels of the game.
