It’s been four weeks since Blackburn Rovers held out for a draw against an in-form Brendan Rodgers team at Anfield.

Gary Bowyer's team will feel confident they can now exploit a Liverpool side who travel to Ewood Park devoid of confidence and character.

Liverpool come into this game having lost two crucial games on the bounce in the Premier League for the first time since November.

Although Blackburn’s form is no better, having lost two of the last three games both these sides will be hoping their poor form goes out the window for the semi-final replay.
