Newcastle United are through to Third Round of the EFL Cup after defeating Blackburn 1-0 at St James' Park.

Joelinton really isn't a centre forward.

Put this into perspective - Callum Wilson had eight touches in the box, including a goal, in his debut against West Ham.

In a game which Rovers dominated, Newcastle were fortunate to progress and set up a tie against League Two side Morecambe.

Joelinton was given the chance to impress knowing that, barring injury or severe loss of form, summer signing Callum Wilson will keep him out of the XI.

The only goal of the game thanks to debutant Ryan Fraser, who latched onto a Miguel Almiron pass and placed it past the keeper.

United afforded Blackburn's midfielder far too much time - the trio of Holtby, Travis and Rothwell put together 226 passes compared to just the 128 of United's starting four.
