Stephen Warnock has dismissed the FA Cup for relegation-threatened Blackburn this season. Rovers currently lie in the Premier League drop zone and face Coventry in the fifth round of the FA Cup on Saturday.
He said: "It may sound disrespectful but the FA Cup is nothing to us this season.
"For the club, the Premier League is all that matters. If we win the FA Cup and go down it won't mean a thing.
"The manager has already said that people's livelihoods are at stake. Jobs are on the line and that falls to the players."
