HALF TIME: Blackburn Rovers 0 Millwall 1
8:35pm Wednesday 13th March 2013 in Sport
BLACKBURN Rovers trail to a Danny Shittu goal at half time in tonight’s FA Cup quarter final replay at home to Millwall.
Lions defender Shittu headed home a Chris Taylor corner in the 42nd minute to leave Rovers having to come from behind in the second half if they are to reach a semi final against Wigan at Wembley.
The match had been relatively even before that as neither side could carve out many clear cut chances.
Leon Best saw a shot deflected wide for Rovers before David Dunn came close to finding the far corner with a clever effort from the edge of the box from a Morten Gamst Pedersen short corner.
But Rob Hulse then headed just wide for Millwall as keeper Jake Kean was stranded off his line attempting to claim a deep cross from Shane Lowry.
Taylor then fired an angled shot wide and saw another effort deflected into the side netting before providing the delivery for Shittu to put Millwall in front.
