Manchester United face Middlesbrough in a FA Cup replay at Old Trafford, after the first meeting ended in a 2-2 draw at Riverside on Saturday.
He told MUTV: “Obviously, we’d liked to have gone straight through, but the main thing is that we’re still in the draw. It was disappointing to lose goals just before and just after half time, but it’s a difficult place to come to get a result so we’re pleased that, having gone behind, we fought back.”
On the bussy schedule Rooney said: “We’re all professionals and we have to keep going. I don’t think [the extra game] is a problem and I’d like to play every game.
“We’ve got home advantage and we’re confident of beating anyone coming to Old Trafford. It’s getting towards the end of the season and everyone is thinking about finals and hopefully winning the league. I’m the same.
“It was a bad feeling losing to Arsenal. If we can get to the final again then I’m sure if we have that many chances again, we’ll take them.”
