FULL TIME: Millwall 0 Blackburn Rovers 0
3:52pm Sunday 10th March 2013 in Sport
BLACKBURN Rovers will face Millwall in a replay at Ewood Park on Wednesday after today’s FA Cup quarter final finished goalless at the Den.
Millwall came close to opening the scoring in the first half as Liam Trotter curled a shot wide and Rob Hulse then had a goal disallowed for a foul on Jake Kean from a corner.
The home team were then inches from going 1-0 ahead as Andy Keogh’s header came back off the inside of the post.
But Rovers, who lost Adam Henley and then replacement Bradley Orr to injury, threatened more after the interval and Jordan Rhodes fired an angled effort just over the bar.
Kean had to keep out Danny Shittu’s powerful 40-yard shot at the other end, before Hulse missed the target when he looked set to score from Keogh’s centre.
Rovers though also came close to winning the tie as Josh King’s header hit the post.
The replay will take place this Wednesday at 7.45pm.
Rovers: Jake Kean, Adam Henley (Bradley Orr 36, David Dunn 48), Scott Dann, Grant Hanley, Markus Olsson, David Bentley, Jason Lowe, Morten Gamst Pedersen, Josh King (Nuno Gomes 87), Leon Best, Jordan Rhodes. Subs not used: Greg Sandomierski, Gael Givet, Karim Rekik, David Goodwillie.
