    • 33' Guthrie gets to the byline and sends over a cross...Ba can't quite get his toe to it to bring Newcastle level.

    • 30' Pedersen has a go from fully 30 yards and Krul punches his effort away. Great strike!
    • 29' Goodwillie is fouled by Perch, who gets a talking to from the referee. We're still yet to see a yellow card tonight.
    • 28' A stat for you. Rovers have enjoyed 64% of the possession so far.
    • 27' Samba clears for Rovers under pressure.
    • 25' Now it's Newcastle's turn to attack. They've got Rovers pinned in, but Gutierrez's cross is poor.

    • 16' Cabaye tries one from distance, but he rather embarrassingly scuffs his effort to a round of jeers.

    • 14' Corner for Blackburn. Pedersen's delivery is met by Samba, whose header goes wide.
    • 13' Rochina does well to rob Santon, but he in turn gives the ball back to Newcastle.
    • 12' A very open game so far, with chances at both ends.
    • 10' Hoilett just overruns it as he attempts to make yards on the wing.
    • 9' Goodwillie shoots across Krul, who spills it...Yakubu almost nips in to punish him, but Newcastle escape.
    • 8' Great chance that for Ba, although the Rovers fans definitely thought he was offside.
    • 7' Ba breaks for Newcastle, goes one-on-one with Bunn...and hits the post!
    • 5' For the neutral a Blackburn goal is exactly what this game needed. The home side have had a torrid start to the season and need every encouragement. Newcastle will have to come at them now.
    • 4' Olsson's whipped cross is finished superbly by Rochina, who gives Krul no chance from the penalty spot! Rovers lead.
    • 3' Hoillett gets to the by-line and finds Goodwillie. The ball comes to Rochina, but his shot is blocked.
    • 2' Newcastle arrive unbeaten in all competitions, and sitting pretty in fourth in the Premier League.
    • 1' And we're away at Ewood Park!
