Our FA Cup third round clash with Newcastle United will now kick-off at the later time of 5.30pm on Saturday 5th January 2019.

The Football Association have informed both clubs that the change to the kick-off time is due to the game being selected for live broadcast overseas.

Should a replay be required, this will be played at Ewood Park on Tuesday January 15th, kick-off 7.45pm.

The two teams last met in the FA Cup in January 2012, when Newcastle came from behind to book their place in the fourth round courtesy of a 2-1 win.

Rovers have fond memories of more recent meetings with the Magpies, as Charlie Mulgrew netted the winner both at home and away, as Rovers recorded 1-0 victories over Newcastle in the Championship two seasons ago.

Ticket prices for the cup clash can be found below, with details regarding the on-sale date to be confirmed in due course.
