The last five encounters between West Ham and Blackburn Rovers have ended in a draw and should we repeat that feat for a sixth time this afternoon we will be forced to reschedule a Premier League match in a busy upcoming fixture schedule.
West Ham and Blackburn have been allocated ball number five in the FA Cup quarter final draw. Sixth-round ties will need to be played between Friday 11th and Monday 14th March.
If the Hammers are forced to play a FA cup replay it would mean either Sunderland at home next Saturday on 27th Feb, Spurs at home under the Boleyn ground lights on the evening of 2nd March or Everton away on Saturday 5th March would need to be moved to make way.
Our home match against Watford on the 12th March is also under threat and would also need to re-scheduled if we progress to the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.
