'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Past Record A Worry

Blackburn (from): Friedel, Neill, Khizanishvili, Nelsen, Matteo, Bentley, Tugay, Savage, Pedersen, Dickov, Kuqi, Enckelman, Emerton, Bellamy, Thompson, Gray, Peter, Johnson, Gresko, Todd, Reid.

Man Utd (from): Van der Sar, Howard, Neville, Bardsley, Brown, Ferdinand, Silvestre, Evra, O'Shea, Richardson, Ronaldo, Fletcher, Smith, Scholes, Giggs, Van Nistelrooy, Saha, Rooney, Rossi, Solskjaer.



United defeated Blackburn at the same stage of the competition three seasons ago but their recent record against Rovers is not good.

The Red Devils have not scored a victory over the Lancashire outfit in four attempts, Mark Hughes is unbeaten in two outings against his former club since replacing Graeme Souness as manager and Rovers have already beaten United at Old Trafford this season, Morten Gamst Pedersen netting the late winner in September.

Ferguson recognises the danger, although he believes his own side have contributed to their downfall by failing to take their chances, a problem he insists has been rectified since the sides' last meeting.

Ferguson: 'Blackburn are a hard team to play against. Mark Hughes revitalised them when he joined the club last year. He arrived at just the right time and you have to give him a lot of credit for the work he has done there.

'He added to his squad in the summer by bringing Craig Bellamy in and lads like Pedersen, Robbie Savage and Ryan Nelsen are all improving in their second season there.

'They have got better as those players have developed and they are in good form at the moment.

'But we have missed a lot of chances in our last few games against them. Brad Friedel must have made about 14 superb saves when we drew with them at Blackburn last season and it was the same story at Old Trafford this year.

'Our recent goalscoring ratio suggests we are starting to get to grips with that problem now, so hopefully we will get the right mix tomorrow and the right result.'
