Rovers dump Gunners in FA Cup

11:19 am on 18 February 2013

Blackburn Rovers have knocked Arsenal out of English football's FA Cup.

Blackburn shocked their Premier League hosts in London, the second division side winning 1-0 in the fifth-round tie thanks to a Colin Kazim-Richards goal in the 72nd minute.

Everton drew their fifth-round tie 2-2 at Oldham Athletic, the third division team equalising in the final minute.

Another Championship team, Millwall, halted giant-killers Luton Town's run with a comprehensive 3-0 away win, ending the Hatters' hopes of becoming the first minor league side for 99 years to reach the quarter-finals of the competition.

It was an anti-climax for Luton, who play one level below the Football League, after they had beaten Premier League Norwich City away in the previous round.

Championship outfit Barnsley won 3-1 at League One team MK Dons.
