Goalkeeper Ian Lawlor says Saturday's FA Cup tie at Charlton Athletic will be another tough game as Rovers aim for a place in the hat for the third round.

Grant McCann's side travel south to take on the Addicks for the second time within four weeks and the Irishman believes the squad are in stronger position than they were after their first visit.

"It's another tough game. Obviously we didn't do that well when we played them earlier on in the season but we're going to go there with confidence," he said.

"We've been doing well the past couple of games, we've tidied up on defending set pieces and we've been scoring goals. It's going to be a tough game but we're going there full of confidence."

Rovers have only conceded six goals since Lawlor returned to the starting line-up for the past six games, keeping two clean sheets in that time, and he praised the work of his team-mates undertaken on the training ground.

"It's something that we addressed and had to look at, we were conceding a lot of goals from set pieces and second phases. We have been doing a lot of work on the training ground and over the last couple of games we've been looking a lot more solid," he added.

"We are going to be fully focused on ourselves, not them. We know the problems that they can cause us but likewise we can cause them problems so we are looking forward to the game."
