Pic Special: Rover And Out

They gave it their best shot, but Newcastle bowed out of the Carling Cup at the fourth round stage after a thrilling cup-tie at Ewood Park.

Blackburn were cruising at 2-0 going into stoppage time when first Danny Guthrie and then Yohan Cabaye scored from range to force extra time.

Morten Gamst Pedersen's deflected free-kick was then cancelled out by Peter Lovenkrands' penalty and it looked like a spot-kick shoot-out would decide who earned a place in the quarter-finals.

But a free-kick was pumped into the Magpies' box in the dying seconds, Chris Samba won a header and Gael Givet was there to break United hearts.

In his time as Newcastle United Club Photographer, Ian Horrocks has never seen the Magpies get beyond the last eight of this competition and the man who brings nufc.co.uk this gallery will now have to keep his fingers crossed for Carling Cup glory in his landmark 20th year with the club.
