Blackburn Rovers entertain Newcastle United at Ewood Park for the second time this season in tonight’s 8pm Premier League encounter. Blackburn needed extra time to defeat Newcastle in the League Cup earlier in the season but did lose without showing as much as a whimper in the league game at St. James’s Park.
Despite still being in the relegation zone, Blackburn are on something of a good run of form with seven points gained in their last 12. Newcastle are coming off the backs of two straight away defeats to Fulham and Brighton.
Blackburn midfielder David Dunn should return to the squad after recovering from a hip injury but Steve Keen will be ruing the loss of striker Yakubu. New transfer deadline day signings Marcus Olsson (twin brother of Martin) and former Newcastle youngster Bradley Orr were not registered in time to play.
