Victory in the FA Cup clash at Luton on Saturday saw Millwall given a home tie against Blackburn in the quarter final.

Goals from James Henry, Rob Hulse and Dany N'Guessan saw the Lions through comfortably at Kenilworth Road.

In the much-hyped battle with media playing on the violence of 28 years ago in the same fixture, the game passed by with little incident.

Police reported seven arrests in all for public order offences - one of which was inside the ground.

Superintendent Linda Kelly, Bedfordshire Police tactical commander, said: "I have been pleased with the way today's policing operation has gone.

"It was an excellent partnership between ourselves, the clubs, the other forces and agencies."

The match against Blackburn at The Den will take place on the weekend of March 9/10.
