BOOKED Liam Feeney for Millwall. Trotter hauled down Josh King when bursting clear on the left. King looking very lively this half. 64 mins. 2-1.

4:16pm

Millwall go close to an equaliser. Martyn Woolford out-muscles Adam Henley inside the box and - despite claims for a foul - sees his left-footed shot turned over the bar and on to the net by Simon Eastwood. Better second half. 54 mins. 2-1.

4:08pm

GOAL 2-1 Rovers. Ben Marshall. 48 mins.

4:06pm

Second half under way. No changes. But let's hope there is some change in the entertainment stakes. Poor first half. But even scoreline.

3:49pm

HALF-TIME Rovers 1 Millwall 1.

3:47pm

Last-ditch tackle by Grant Hanley has just denied Martyn Waghorn a potential second goal. 44 mins. 1-1.

3:45pm

Millwall have deserved that. Neat turn and pass from Liam Trotter opened up the Rovers defence and Steve Morison unselfishly crossed for his strike-partner Martyn Waghorn to slide in at the back post and turn the ball home.

3:44pm

GOAL 1-1 Millwall. Martyn Waghorn. 42 mins.

3:40pm

Formation change for Rovers. Now matching Millwall's 4-4-2. Josh King has gone up front alongside Jordan Rhodes, with Chris Taylor moving to the right of midfield. 39 mins. 1-0.

3:36pm

Absolutely throwing it down. Conditions making it hard for both sides. 35 mins. 1-0.

3:34pm

Millwall manager Steve Lomas far from happy. He thought it was a foul in the box on Steve Morison. 34 mins. 1-0.

3:32pm

Dangerous moment for Rovers as Martyn Woolford's cross is parried by Simon Eastwood under pressure before being cleared by Scott Dann as far as Steve Morison, who claimed he was brought down the box. No doing, however. 31 mins. 1-0.

3:27pm

BOOKED Nadjim Abdou for Millwall. 25 mins. 1-0.

3:26pm

Great goal, great striker. There seemed little on when top-scorer Jordan Rhodes raced on to a long ball over the top. But after bringing it under his control, he left Mark Beevers on his backside before sending the ball back across David Forde into the bottom corner from 20 yards. That's Rhodes' 12th goal of the season.

3:23pm

GOAL 1-0 Rovers. Jordan Rhodes. 22 mins.

3:19pm

Millwall keeper David Forde makes the first save of the game from Tom Cairney. After Josh King was brought down by Scott Malone just outside the area, Cairney curled in a fiercly struck free kick which Forde parried clear. 18 mins. 0-0.

3:17pm

After a bright opening, match is lacking inspiration. Rovers trying to play the ball on the floor but no joy so far opening up the Millwall defence. 16 mins. 0-0.

3:06pm

Lively start. Millwall centre-back Mark Beevers has just headed wide a cross from Liam Trotter. Rovers goalkeeper Simon Eastwood, who is making his home debut, had it covered. 5 mins. 0-0.

3:01pm

And we are under way.

3:01pm

Just about to get under way. Rovers will be kicking toward the Ronnie Clayton Blackburn End in the first half.

2:43pm

Just over 15 minutes until kick-off. Rovers have made one change - Josh King in for Lee Williamson, who has picked up a knock. Millwall are unchanged.
