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."

heyremind me of Utd's treble winning side. Swashbuckling and risk prone. We ha Jaap Stam to paper over the cracks at the back though. Not sure they have their Jaap yet.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
