Looking at the opposition (Blackburn)


Blackburn's recent form is good reading for Newcastle, check out their form.

W 2-1 West Brom (H)

L 0-3 Sheff Utd (A)

L 2-3 Leeds (A)

L 0-1 Norwich (H)

D 2-2 Birmingham (H)

D 1-1 Middlesbrough (A)

P6 W1 D2 L3 F7 A11 PTS 5/18

Blackburn sit in 15th place in the Championship. 12 points above the relegation zone and 9 points off the playoffs, they're not going up or going down.

Geordie lad Adam Armstrong joined permanently in August, he's netted just once in the Championship this season, he's having a tough time of it this campaign but he'll be desperate to play at St James' Park on Saturday, so too will fellow Geordie, Danny Graham.

Last match in Rovers win over West Brom:

Martin.

Bennett, Lenihan, Mulgrew, Bell.

Travis, Evans.

Reed, Dack, Armstrong.

Graham.

Expect to see one or two changes but no more than that.

Dangermen are Charlie Mulgrew, a whopping 8 goals and he's a defender, a danger from set pieces. Attacking midfielder Bradley Back is their top scorer with 10, and of course ex Mackem, Danny Graham leads the line, he has 8 so far this season.
