Nicklas Bendtner was delighted to play a part in Arsenal's Carling Cup quarterfinal victory at Blackburn Rovers.

"We've been in the semi-finals and final over the last two years, and this time we want to go for it and win it," he said. "I thought it was a very hard game. We thought everything was going well, but Blackburn got back into it and gave us a really tough game.

"I thought we kept playing quite well, we fought and won it."
