Date confirmed for Rovers replay
Newcastle United will travel to Blackburn Rovers for the FA Cup third round replay on Tuesday, 15th January, with kick-off set for 7.45pm.
And the tie between Tony Mowbray’s men and the Magpies will also be screened live on BT Sport.
The Magpies drew 1-1 with the Championship side at St. James’ Park on Saturday, with Matt Ritchie’s late penalty cancelling out Bradley Dack’s headed opener.
And now they will have to do battle again, this time at Ewood Park, with a place in the fourth round – and a home tie against Watford – up for grabs for the winners.
Further details will be announced in due course.
