Robinson has struggled with a hamstring problem in recent weeks and, after returning to play 70 minutes of last week's 2-1 defeat to Doncaster, missed out once more for the weekend's 1-1 draw with Preston.

But Moore believes the decision to move the forthcoming tie to Sunday for live television coverage could work in the former Swansea man's favour.

"Robbo is a funny one," he told Rovers' official website. "One minute we thought he was going to be alright, then he's not alright.

"He's going to train with the physio on Monday, so he won't be involved with the first team.

"We're hoping that - and with there being the extra day as well - that he will be available for selection."

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
