Millwall vs. Blackburn Rovers: Lineups

Leon Best makes his first start for Blackburn Rovers as they take on Millwall in the FA Cup quarter-final.

The striker had not played for Rovers until recently after injuring himself after completing his £3m move from Newcastle United, but starts alongside Jordan Rhodes up front for Rovers today. David Bentley, Joshua King and Morten Gamst Pedersen will be providing support from midfield.

Meanwhile, Millwall send out a very bizarre lineup, with Jack Smith making his first start for some time in midfield, and Rob Hulse returning to the side after injury. Nadjim Abdou is also surprisingly dropped despite his good recent form.

Millwall starting lineup (4-4-2): David Forde; Alan Dunne, Danny Shittu, Mark Beevers, Shane Lowry; Jack Smith, Liam Trotter, Chris Taylor, Dany N’Guessan; Andy Keogh, Rob Hulse

Blackburn starting lineup (4-4-2): Jake Kean; Adam Henley, Scott Dann, Grant Hanley, Martin Olsson; David Bentley, Jason Lowe, Morten Gamst Pedersen, Joshua King; Leon Best, Jordan Rhodes.
