    • Millwall
    • 90' FT Blackburn 0-1 Millwall.
    • 90' Massive chance for Millwall. Marquis finds Taylor, who somehow puts his shot wide from 12 yards under no pressure.
    • 88' Nuno Gomes has an effort blocked from close-range. Millwall hanging on a bit.
    • 87' Best drives into the box ffrom the left wing, but fires his shot way over the bar.
    • 86' Shittu is heading everything out for Millwall. Rhodes hasn't had a look-in.
    • 84' Millwall sub; Marquis on, Hulse off.
    • 83' Hulse pops the ball over Hanley's head and almost gets the chance to finish the game off, but Blackburn somehow clear before Hulse can get a shot away. Big chance for Millwall.
    • 81' Dann mishits a cross but it drops just wide of Forde's goal. Forde looked confident as the ball sailed very close to the frame of his goal!
    • 80' Pedersen looks long again, but Shittu is in the way. The Millwall skipper has been a man mountain at the back for the Lions again.
    • 79' Millwall looking the more likely to add another, but Taylor fires an effort hopelessly high and wide.
    • 77' Blackburn are completely shapeless in attack. Dann pumps another aimless ball forward.
    • 75' Beevers is in the book for a tug. Two-match ban for him.
    • 74' Taylor swings the free-kick into the box, but Hanley heads away for Rovers.
    • 73' Millwall win a free-kick 30 yards out.
    • 72' Kenny Jackett barking instructions from the touchline as Millwall continue to keep things tight. Blackburn struggling to find a way through.
    • 70' Shittu gets lucky as his clearance deflects off Olsson, but rolls straight into Forde's path.
    • 68' Good spell by Millwall. Keogh tries to fire a cross in from the right, but Blackburn clear.
    • 67' Best takes a tumble in the box, but Clattenburg is not interested. Blackburn putting much more pressure on Millwall now.
    • 65' Millwall sub: Abdou on, N'Guessan off.
    • 63' Best looks odds on to score but Lowry clears off the line. He read that like a book, but Blackburn beginning to look more of a threat now.
    • 62' Like the first match at the Den, very few chances to report so far.
    • 60' Keogh trips Olsson and goes into the book.
    • 59' Best nods a high ball down and Nuno Gomes almost latches onto it. Shittu clears.
    • 58' Shittu sends a high ball forward and it hits N'Guessan in the face. Millwall keep the move alive, but the impetus of the move is lost.
    • 57' Hulse gets a clattering as he contests a header with Rovers skipper Hanley.
    • 55' King drives forward, but Taylor gets back to make a superb challenge to halt him.
    • 54' Dann drives through three or four challenges but misplaces his pass as he tries to find Rhodes.
    • 53' Blackburn work the ball down the left, but Pedersen's cross is claimed well by Forde.
    • 52' Trotter's quick throw finds Keogh, but Keogh's cross is behind Husle and Millwall should have made more of that opportunity.
    • 51' Dunne and Nuno Gomes have clashed in the centre circle, and Clattenburg has given it Blackburn's way.
    • 50' Milwlall have started this second half well, and have earned another corner.
    • 49' Pedersen's corner is headed back in by Dann to King, who miscues his shot over the bar.
    • 48' Keogh tries to dribble his way forward and ignores the run of Dunne to his right - but Keogh is tackled.
    • 47' Blackburn sub: Nuno Gomes on, Olsson off
    • 47' Lowe's throw finds King, but his volley is lashed wildly over the bar.
    • 46' We are back underway at Ewood Park.
    • 45' HT Blackburn 0-1 Millwall. Shittu's header separates the sides at the break.
    • 44' Dunn crashes into the goal scorer Shittu, and rightly goes into the book.
    • 43' Shittu is booked for taking off his shirt when he celebrated the goal.
    • 42' GOAL! Shittu darts ahead of Best to thump a header past Kean and put Millwall ahead in the race for Wembley. The Lions have deserved it.
    • 41' Hand ball shout for Millwall as N'Guessan blasts the ball into Lowe's arm. Nothing given, but another corner for Millwall.
    • 40' Taylor's excellent free-kick deflects off a Blackburn body for a Millwall corner.
    • 39' Keogh is fouled on the right wing and Millwall have a good chance to ping the ball into the box.
    • 38' Josh King shifts the ball onto his right foot, wrong footing Danny Shittu in the process, but cannot keep his rising effort down.
    • 36' Jack Smith intercepts a slick Blackburn move before it reaches Rhodes. Crucial intervention.
    • 35' Trotter finds Dunne on the overlap, but Dunne's cross is plucked from the night sky by Kean.
    • 34' N'Guessan chases after Forde's long punt forward, but the flag is up.
    • 32' Very few chances to speak of so far. Much of the game being played in the middle third.
    • 31' Pedersen sends in a good throw from the right as Blackburn begin to exert some pressure on Millwall.
    • 29' Dunne goes down easily under Olsson's challenge - and the pair exchange some angry words.
    • 27' Taylor goes for goal from distance again, but just off target again. Two decent efforts by the former Oldham man so far.
    • 26' Keogh clatters into Dunn, and is again lucky not to be in the book.
    • 25' Pederen lofts a cross into the box from the right but Beevers and Lowry combine to clear.
    • 24' Great effort by Chris Taylor, who waltzes into space 20 yards out and drills a superb left-footed shot just wide.
    • 22' Forde looks long for Keogh, who nods the ball down - but Hulse was nowhere near it.
    • 21' Dunne goes down easily under Olsson's challenge - and Olsson is not happy,
    • 20' N'Guessan is fouled on the halfway line and Lowry pumps a long ball into the box towards Hulse, but the striker cannot do much with it - even though keeper Kean was in nomansland.
    • 19' Pedersen floats it in diagonally, but Millwall head clear.
    • 18' Keogh catches King late, and Keogh gets a ticking off by the referee. Blackburn free-kick in a dangerous area...
    • 17' Millwall claiming a penalty as N'Guessan appears to be held by Lowe. Not much in it, but there was certainly some contact.
    • 16' Dunn almost scores for Blackburn! The corner is played back to the edge of the box to Dunn, whose first-time shot drifts a metre or so wide. Best effort so far.
    • 15' Best lets fly with a speculative effort from distance, which flicks off a Millwall foot and goes out for a corner.
    • 13' Rhodes collects the ball 25 yards from goal, but sends it shot way over the bar.
    • 11' Blackburn playing very tentatively so far as they try to focus their attacks down Millwall's left.
    • 10' Millwall seeing a lot more of the ball at the moment. Keogh, Smith and N'Guessan all bright for the Lions.
    • 8' Taylor is okay and we are back underway. Millwall have enjoyed the best of it so far.
    • 7' Taylor and N'Guessan clash heads - and Taylor is receiving treatment.
    • 6' Lovely move by Millwall, which was started by Jack Smith's sweeping ball to Keogh on the right. Keogh finds Dunne on the overlap, but his cross is just too high for Chris Taylor.
    • 5' Best cuts onto his right foot and fires a low shot at goal, which deflects off a Millwall player but Forde gets down well.
    • 4' Millwall looking long for Hulse at every opportunity.
    • 3' Keogh leaps high to get on the end of a deep cross, but he can't keep his header on target.
    • 2' King finds Best, who threads it through to Rhodes, who is just offside.
    • 1' We are underway at Ewood Park.
    • 19.27 The teams are out at Ewood Park...
    • 19.25 Rovers are one of only two teams (with Man City) yet to concede a goal in the FA Cup proper this season. This is Millwall’s sixth appearance in round six of the FA Cup; they have progressed through two of the previous five, including the last one (2003/04 v Tranmere).
    • 19.20 Rovers have won both previous FA Cup ties with Millwall; they won 2-1 in round three of the 1978/79 competition and 1-0 in round four back in 2001/02. The Lions have not won four successive FA Cup games outright.
    • 19.15 This is the first FA Cup quarter-final not to feature a Premier League side since 2008, when West Brom thumped Bristol Rovers 5-1.
    • 19.10 Michael Appleton: "Poor Adam, he's done his hamstring again. A grade two (tear) and it looks quite a bad one. It's probably the end of his season, which is disappointing because he's a young player that obviously we rate very highly. I haven't seen much of him because of injury - it's probably the same with a few of the players since I've been at the club."
    • 19.05 Kenny Jackett: "By this stage of the season you know a lot about each others' teams. Sunday was tight and I think tonight will be the same."
    • 19.00 Kenny Jackett: “You can’t be concentrating on Wigan at Wembley because you have to work out how to get there first. That equation is the thing we have to focus on.”
    • 18.55 Blackburn defender Adam Henley is expected to miss the rest of the season after suffering a fresh hamstring tear in the first match. Another right-back Bradley Orr misses out with a rib injury while Blackburn are without David Bentley, who took a blow to the knee in the game.
    • 18.50 James Henry remains sidelined by a knee injury and fellow winger Martyn Woolford is cup-tied. QPR loanee Rob Hulse was a doubt for the original tie with a stomach injury, but he came through the full 90 minutes unscathed and starts at Ewood Park.
    • 18.45 Millwall manager Kenny Jackett names unchanged starting line-up from the side that drew a blank at the Den. The only change is on the bench, with Nathan Tyson coming in for Liam Feeney.
    • 18.40 BLACKBURN ROVERS: Kean, Lowe, Dann, Hanley (c), Martin Olsson, King, Pedersen, Dunn, Markus Olsson, Best, Rhodes. Subs: Sandomierski, Givet, Nuno Gomes, Forrester, Rekik, Goodwillie, O'Sullivan /// MILLWALL: Forde; Dunne, Shittu (c), Beevers, Lowry; C Taylor, J Smith, Trotter, N'Guessan; Keogh, Hulse. Subs: M.Taylor, Osborne, A.Smith, Abdou, Saville, Tyson, Marquis.
    • 18.35 The team news is in, so let's waste no time...
    • 18.30 Hello everyone. Welcome to live coverage of tonight's FA Cup sixth round replay between Blackburn and Millwall. The sides played out a dour 0-0 draw at the Den on Saturday, but who will proceed to Wembley by the end of tonight?
