And with good reason. Two clashes between the clubs this season have brought 11 goals, Rovers having won 3-2 in a League Two clash at the Memorial Stadium in August.

After seeing substitute Wes Fletcher score an 86th-minute equaliser to keep his side in the competition on an evening of high drama, Worthington said: "That was FA Cup football at its best and I don't see why the replay will be any different.

"We are giving away soft goals at the moment, which is something I don't like, and when you are ahead twice and score three away from home it is disappointing not to win.

"But we live to fight another day. It was a good, honest competitive game and great for the supporters so let's get ready for the next one.

"It will be all guns blazing for both sets of players again at our place and that is what the FA Cup is all about. We will need to defend better and it's something we have to work on."
