Stat Attack

12 December 2013

Rovers v Lions down the years

Saturday's match at Ewood Park will be the 37th meeting between Millwall and Blackburn Rovers in all competitions - and to date The Lions are a way behind in terms of results.

Millwall have beaten Rovers nine times in League meetings, with seven matches drawn and Blackburn victorious in 16 games.

Rovers edge the stats in the FA Cup with two wins from the four matches that have taken place, with one game drawn and The Lions securing one victory.

Overall Blackburn edge the stats with 18 victories to Millwall's 10, the remaining eight matches have finished all-square.

A solitary goal by Danny Shittu was enough to clinch success for Millwall when the two teams last locked horns at Ewood Park in the FA Cup Quarter Final replay on Wednesday 13th March. Five weeks later Blackburn gained revenge for that defeat by taking maximum points in a 2-1 Championship win at The Den courtesy of goals from David Jones and a Jordan Rhodes penalty.
