Rovers are through to the semi-finals of the Carling Cup after a night of high drama at Ewood Park.

Rovers started the game well and Kalanic put Rovers 1-0 up on 9 minutes. Rovers continued to dominate but could not get the crucial second goal.

Chelsea made substitutions at half time and turned the game round within 10 minutes of the restart with goals from Drogba and Kalou putting them 2-1. Rovers hit back through Emerton. Rovers had chances to win the game in normal time but bad finishing and inspired goalkeeping took the game into extra-time.

Rovers began extra-time full of positive intent and took the lead through a Benni McCarthy penalty and wasted numerous opportunities to extend that lead, with the game heading into injury time a huge error by Robinson allowed Chelsea to equalise and take the game into penalty.

However Robinson was the hero as he saved two Chelsea penalties to ensure Rovers reached the Semi-Finals.

Rovers now play Aston Villa in the semi-finals. The first leg will be played at Ewood Park.
