26 October 2011 10:46

Gael Givet's header in the last minute of extra time secured an amazing 4-3 victory for Blackburn in an extraordinary Carling Cup fourth-round match against Newcastle.

Rovers led 2-0, 3-2 and finally 4-3 as the Magpies refused to accept defeat at Ewood Park. Ruben Rochina and Yakubu struck first for Blackburn, Danny Guthrie and Yohan Cabaye scored last-ditch strikes to send the game into extra time.

Morten Gamst Pedersen made it 3-2, Peter Lovenkrands equalised again from the spot, but then came Givet's last-gasp heroics.
