Of course 2 years later in 1927 City managed to go one better and actually win the FA Cup. Blackburn themsleves then won the last of their 6 FA Cups in 1928. Previously they had won the Cup 5 times in 8 seasons between 1884 and 1891. Their last major success was the League Cup in 2002 when current boss Mark Hughes played in a 2 - 1 win over Spurs at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.
The last time the teams me in the FA Cup was in the 1957 / 58 season. The teams were drawn together for a 5th round tie at Ninian Park. That match finished 0 - 0 so 5 days later on Thursday 20th February 1958 City went to Ewood Park but lost 2 - 1.
That was the last FA Cup meeting, in the league the teams have not met since April 1985 when Blackburn won 2 - 1 at Ninian Park to complete a league double.
