Sports Mole previews Sunday's all-Championship FA Cup quarter-final between Millwall and Blackburn Rovers.

Both Millwall and Blackburn Rovers will be looking for a break from their poor league form when they meet in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup on Sunday.

The Lions have won just one of their last six league games, while Blackburn's last victory in any competition came with their unexpected 1-0 win at Arsenal in the last round.

Michael Appleton's men have lost four and drawn one of their last five since that win at the Emirates.

Millwall dispatched Luton Town 3-0 in round five. This tie will be the first FA Cup quarter-final to not feature a Premier League side since 2008.

Kenny Jackett will be without winger James Henry, who has been ruled out for the season with a knee injury, while striker Rob Hulse faces a late fitness test ahead of the game.

Appleton could decide to change the lineup which was beaten 1-0 at Bolton Wanderers in midweek, with Danny Murphy and David Bentley both pushing for starts.
