Millwall will play in an FA Cup semi-final at Wembley if they can overcome Blackburn Rovers in their quarter-final replay at Ewood Park tonight. The two sides drew 0-0 at The Den on Sunday. However, Millwall did win 2-0 when the two sides met in the league at Ewood Park back in November.

The Lions' Liam Trotter said his team think they can do it despite being away from home: "We want to get to Wembley, we realise how important it is to the fans and to the club, but we are focused on playing our normal game against a club in the same league as us.

"We've got every chance of beating them, we have already beaten them at Ewood Park this season and we plan to do the same again.

"It's going to be a difficult game and we have to maintain the performance from Sunday, and if we do that we'll give ourselves a good opportunity."
