Newcastle v Blackburn has been confirmed on its expected date.

The FA Cup third round tie will be played on Saturday 5 January and kick-off at 3pm.

It would have been very surprising if it had been moved for live TV, maybe possible if it had been Newcastle playing away at Blackburn.

The date was basically confirmed yesterday, when the six matches moved for live TV were confirmed.

Newcastle United announcement:

‘Newcastle United’s Emirates FA Cup Third Round game at home to Blackburn Rovers will take place on Saturday, 5th January.

Tickets for the tie – which kicks off at 3pm – are priced at £10 for adults and £5 for concessions. Those prices will rise to £20 and £10 respectively on the day of the game.

Rovers last visited St. James’ Park during the Magpies’ title-winning Championship campaign, when – surprisingly – they won 1-0 thanks to Charlie Mulgrew’s second-half strike.

The two clubs have met 11 times in the FA Cup – including replays – with United winning six and losing just twice.

Their last meeting in the competition came during the 2011/12 campaign – also at the Third Round stage – with the Magpies running out 2-1 winners at St. James’ Park.’
