FA CUP Aston Villa 3 - 1 Blackburn

Robert Pires scored his first goal for Aston Villa as they saw off Blackburn to reach the fifth round of the FA Cup.
Ciaran Clark nodded Villa ahead but Rovers were quickly level as Nikola Kalinic bundled home from close range.
Veteran winger Pires restored Villa's lead with a sweet half-volley before Nathan Delfouenso's header made it 3-1.
With half-an-hour left, Villa defender Nathan Baker saw red for a wild tackle on David Hoilett but Gerard Houllier's side easily held out to progress.
