Oxford United celebrate their victory over Swansea City

After producing the shock of The Emirates FA Cup so far earlier this month, Oxford United are now preparing to do it again.

The League Two side play Championship outfit Blackburn Rovers in a fourth round tie at the Kassam Stadium on Saturday, the same venue where they slayed Swansea City in the third round in front of a live TV audience.

FATV paid a trip to the Kassam Stadium this week to hear the thoughts of U's boss Michael Appleton, his experienced assistant Derek Fazackerley and captain Jake Wright.

And with Appleton having spent two months as Blackburn boss three years ago and Fazackerley being Rovers' record appearance holder, there's no shortage of talking points as they plot another Cup shock.
