(Video Highlights) Blackburn 4-1 Stoke: Embarrassing Return To Former Club For Mark Hughes

Posted by

The Championship side shocked their Premier League rivals in the fifth round of the FA Cup.

Blackburn are one of the shock names heading into the FA Cup quarter finals after a 4-1 demolition of Stoke City at Ewood Park.

It looked as if the Potters had got off to a perfect start through Peter Crouch, the lanky striker scoring after just 10 minutes.

But Blackburn struck back just after the half hour mark, with Josh King scoring a fine goal from a corner Stoke failed to handle.

And things got worse for the Potters when Geoff Cameron gave away a penalty and was sent off for a tackle on King. Rudy Gestede stepped up and put the hosts ahead from the spot.

It only took five minutes in the second half for Blackburn to further their lead, King taking advantage of a high backline.

The rout was complete with King securing his hat-trick just five minutes later, the Rovers man sprinting away from the Stoke back line yet again.
