Liverpool were left frustrated by Championship side Blackburn Rovers who defended heroically to draw 0-0 at Anfield and force a replay in their FA Cup quarter-final.

After an even first half Liverpool dominated after the break but wave after wave of attack was thwarted by a Blackburn side who had already accounted for Premier League sides Swansea City and Stoke city in the two previous rounds.

Kolo Toure headed against a post, while Daniel Sturridge, Philippe Coutinho and Raheem Sterling failed to break down their second tier visitors despite relentless pressure.

The Reds were unlucky in the first two minutes of the match as defender Martin Skrtel experienced a very nasty fall while challenging the ball in the air against Rudy Gestede.

The Slovakia international was then taken out on a stretcher as the entire stadium applauded him.
