Comments:

This was Oxford United's first appearance in the fourth round since 1999, when they lost 4-2 to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge after a replay. Jonjoe Kenny was booked in the second minute of added time in the second half.

Comments:

The Rovers had now lost just two of their last 22 FA Cup games against lower league opposition; 16 wins, four draws. Both defeats were to Coventry City in 2008 and 2009. Blackburn Rovers named only six of a possible seven substitutes Tony Watt scored in the second minute of added time in the first half.
