Pic Special: Newcastle U21s 0 Blackburn U21s 1
Newcastle United exited the Under-21 Premier League Cup following a 1-0 quarter-final home defeat against Blackburn Rovers on Tuesday night.
Dean Rittenberg's first half goal was enough to separate the sides at St. James' Park and inflict just a second defeat of the season on Peter Beardsley's young Magpies.
A disappointing night for United was compounded in injury-time when French midfielder Olivier Kemen was sent off for his second booking.
