Rovers have been drawn against Newcastle United in the third round of the Emirates FA Cup.
The clash against the Magpies will take place on the weekend of Friday 4th January 2019, with full details regarding kick-off date and time, and ticket details announced in due course.
The last time we visited St James' Park was back in November 2016, with Charlie Mulgrew netting the winner against a team who would go on to get promoted from the Championship.
In fact, Rovers have won the last two encounters against the Geordies.
We last played each other in the FA Cup back in January 2012, with Rovers losing 2-1 at St James', David Goodwillie scoring our goal.
