Blackburn Rovers came into the game after hitting Premier League Stoke for four but were a little lucky to return to Lancashire with a point from the match at Cardiff City Stadium. The Bluebirds had the better of the first half under the lights but were unable to muster an opening. A goal line clearance from Eoin Doyle's shot proved to be the best chance of the opening 45 minutes. City edged the second half over the visitors and looked to have won it late on when Sean Morrison rose the highest to turn in a Peter Whittingham corner. With 90 minutes on the clock, Rudy Gestede made a scoring return to the Welsh capital after turning the ball in from a Scott Malone goal line clearance to secure a somewhat fortuitous point for the travelling Rovers.
