A complete kick in the gonads this, but I had arranged with both Conrad Logan and Anthony Stokes for them both to attend the Burns Night as both Rochdale (@ AFC Wimbledon) and Blackburn (@ Fulham) were due to play in London on the day of the 28th January. Accommodation and travel home had been arranged and this was to be a 'surprise' on the evening.
There I was sipping a glass of vino sort of half listening to the FA Cup draw. Not paying much attention until the dreaded "4th round ties will be played on the w/e of 28th January".
We'll just have to make do with Gordon Rae and Alan Sneddon
