David Bentley had a debut to remember for Blackburn in the FA Cup after joining his former club on loan until the end of the season.

The midfielder's first appearance was against Arsenal as Championship side Rovers caused the shock of the fifth round at the Emirates on Saturday.

David entered the fray at 0-0 with 62 minutes on the clock and 10 minutes later, Colin Kazim Richards struck the only goal of the game.

David may now come face-to-face with Spurs team-mate Adam Smith for a place at Wembley in the semi-finals.

Adam came on as a late substitute as Millwall beat Luton Town 3-0 in Saturday's early kick-off and the Lions now host Rovers in the quarter-finals.

Jordan Archer started as Wycombe lost 1-0 at Bristol Rovers in League Two.

Heurelho Gomes made a number of fine saves to no avail as Hoffenheim suffered a 1-0 defeat at home to Stuttgart in the Bundesliga.

Yago Falque played 90 minutes as Almeria drew 2-2 against Guadalajara in Spain's Segunda Division. Almeria stay second, but are 12 points adrift of Elche.

In Italy, Souleymane Coulibaly came on in the 61st minute as Grosseto scored a last-minute equaliser in a 2-2 draw against Lanciano in Serie B.

Bongani Khumalo came off the bench at the start of the second half as PAOK draw 0-0 against AEK in the Greek Super League. PAOK slip to third and are 17 points behind leaders Olympiacos.
