Newcastle United Preview – Magpies to see off Rovers on home soil?

Newcastle United will be hoping to end a long wait for some silverware this season. The club have brought in some good players recently, which has certainly lifted the spirits at St James’ Park. Can the Magpies be a force in the cup competitions this term?

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

(odds taken 1510 GMT, Monday 14 September)

Newcastle will want to better last season’s 13th place in the Premier League. A top-half finish will be high on United’s wish list, but a trophy is what the long-suffering fans really want. Can the Magpies get their cup season up and running with a home win on Tuesday night?

Blackburn Rovers Preview – Can Mowbray’s men cause an upset at St James’?

Blackburn Rovers had a decent season in the Championship under the experienced Tony Mowbray last term. Rovers flirted with the play-off places, eventually finishing in 11th spot. Overall, the Blue and Whites won 17, lost 17 and drew 12.

Blackburn beat Doncaster Rovers 3-2 at Ewood Park in the first round of the EFL Cup last month. However, they started their Championship season with a 3-2 loss to Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium last Saturday. They were well in the game, equalising twice, but Arnaut Groeneveld’s late goal won it for the Cherries.
