The visitors scored the decisive goal at the end of the first half when Danny Shittu headed in powerfully past Rovers goalkeeper Jake Kean.

Blackburn's best chance to level came just after the hour, but Shane Lowry cleared Leon Best's shot off the line.

The hosts continued to toil in the final stages as they looked for an equaliser, only to be kept out by a dogged Millwall defence.
