It's in Matt and Dwight.

Dwight Yorke and Matt Jansen each scored twice as Rovers beat Aston Villa to reach the FA Cup fourth round.

Juan Pablo Angel's scored on 41min for Villa to level the score after Matt Jansen had put Rovers in the lead in the 17min. After the break it was all Blackburn with Jansen scoring his second in the 60 min, in between to strikes by Dwight Yorke on 52 min and 71 min.

The match was an emotional event in different ways for both sets of supporters. For Villa it was a sad day being knocked out of the cup by old boy Yorke, who score twice in front of the Holte End, whilst Rovers supporters were on a high, mainly due to the return of last seasons top scores Matt Jansen after being seriously injured in a road accident during the close season.

This being a first of 2 cup matches in 4 days Graeme Souness made a number of changes, resting player prior to next weeks Worthington Cup Semi final against Manchester United.

Todays team.

Friedel, Neill, Todd, Taylor, McEveley, Danns, (Gillespie) Flitcroft, Yorke, (Douglas) Dunn, Ostenstad, (Tugay) Jansen. Subs not used Kelly, Johansson,
