    They are the lowest placed club in the last 32. The fixture featuring the lowest placed club often get live coverage. Our club is still a "name" so there is a potential banana skin facet to the game and, yes, the Rooney effect may also have something to do with it.

    The Bristol game on Feb 12th has now been selected for TV coverage. Considering both are midtable at the moment I think Rooney is the reason for that game being on.
