The visitors will enter the contest off the back of a 4-1 defeat at Arsenal in the Premier League, while Blackburn played out a 1-1 draw with Norwich City in the Championship last time out.

Blackburn are six-time winners of the FA Cup, lifting the trophy in 1884, 1885, 1886, 1890, 1891 and 1928, while they also reached the final of the competition in 1882 and 1960.

John Eustace’s side will not view this competition as a priority this season, but they have been full of goals in the 2023-24 FA Cup, beating Cambridge United 5-2 in the third round before claiming a 4-1 victory over Wrexham last time out.

Rovers are currently 16th in the Championship standings, 16 points off the playoff spots, so it is going to be difficult for them to challenge for promotion this season, and they are actually just four points outside of the relegation zone.

Meanwhile, Newcastle are ninth in the Premier League standings, 10 points behind fifth-placed Tottenham Hotspur and 15 points behind fourth-placed Aston Villa, so it is going to be difficult for them to challenge for Champions League football for the 2024-25 campaign.

However, it is crucial that they secure European football of some kind, so the next few weeks are vital, but the chance to win an FA Cup under the new ownership is an opportunity that might not come around too often.

The Magpies have also won the FA Cup on six previous occasions, succeeding in 1910, 1024, 1932, 1951, 1952 and 1955, while they were last present in the final in 1999, famously losing to Manchester United.

Eddie Howe’s side have been impressive in this season,s FA Cup, beating Sunderland 3-0 in the third round of the competition at the start of January before claiming a 2-0 victory away to Fulham in the fourth round.

Newcastle United Team News

Sandro Tonali, Callum Wilson, Joelinton, Nick Pope, Elliot Anderson and Matt Targett remain unavailable, while Martin Dubravka is a doubt due to illness, so Loris Karius could continue in goal for Newcastle.

Harvey Barnes, Jacob Murphy, Joe Willock and Dan Burn could all come into the side following the game against Arsenal, but Kieran Tippier, Fabian Schar, Sven Botman and Alexander Isak should keep their spots.
