Kemar Roofe scores Oxford’s third goal in their win against Swansea.

One thing that the cup has offered in the past is intriguing matches between managers, players and their former clubs, and this would certainly be the case if Blackburn can win their initial Third Round tie, or any subsequent replay against Newport.

Oxford caused the shock of the Third Round by beating Premier League side Swansea at the Kassam Stadium, and U’s boss Michael Appleton will certainly be looking to get redemption if there is a chance of him squaring off with his former side.

The former Portsmouth boss was sacked after just 67 days in charge at Ewood Park in 2013.
