Rovers will take on West Ham United in the fifth round of the Emirates FA Cup.

It needed extra-time for the Hammers to earn the right to face Rovers at Ewood Park in 12 days time after the two sides couldn't be separated in 90 minutes.

Michail Antonio had given West Ham the lead on the stroke of half-time. The former Nottingham Forest forward volleying home Enner Valencia's cross. But a clever free-kick from Brazilian international Philippe Coutinho two minutes into the second half saw Liverpool level.

Neither side could add to the goal tally in regulation time, and the game seemed destined to be decided by a penalty shootout, but in added time at the end of extra-time Dimitri Payet's free-kick picked out Angelo Ogbonna and he headed West Ham through to meet Rovers at Ewood on Sunday 21st February - kick-off 2.00pm.
