FA CUP: Blackburn hold Manchester City to a draw

Blackburn Rovers will get another shot at securing the scalp of Manchester City, with the two sides playing out a 1-1 draw at Ewood Park in the third round of the FA Cup.

Manuel Pellegrini had vowed prior to kick-off that he would be taking the competition seriously, and the City boss was true to his word as he named a starting XI which included the likes of Fernandinho, David Silva and Alvaro Negredo.

Championship hopefuls Blackburn started positively enough on home soil and had chances to take the lead – through Scott Dann and Chris Taylor – but saw all of their hard work undone on the stroke of half-time.

Edin Dzeko was allowed to glance on an outswinging corner and Spanish hit-man Negredo ghosted around the back post to convert a cushioned volley from close range.

Rovers refused to lie down, though, and hauled themselves level in similar circumstances 10 minutes into the second half, with Rudy Gestede powering a header goalwards from a set-piece which Costel Pantilimon could only spill into the path of Dann to turn home.

A forgettable afternoon for City, in which they were left hanging on at times, ended on a low five minutes from the end when Dedryck Boyata was shown a second yellow card for upending Blackburn striker DJ Campbell.
