Bristol Rovers boss Ian Atkins has set his sights on two trips to the Millennium Stadium this season.

The former Northampton man is hoping for an LDV victory over Southend in the semi-final.

Rovers face Southend at home on 15th February, with the second leg at Roots Hall on March 8th. The winner of the tie will face either Oldham or Wrexham in the final.

Atkins is hoping that the trophy success can inspire his team to victory at his former club Oxford on Saturday.

Lee Thorpe will be suspended with Lewis Haldane likely to partner Jamie Forrester up front. Keeper Kevin Miller is still out although Dave Savage, Ali Gibb and Aaron Lescott could return.
