Blackburn pushed and pushed for the equaliser and nobody trying harder than Adam Armstrong who had came off the bench.

The NUFC Head Coach partly justifying that by saying he thought that the Newcastle United squad was far stronger than this time last year.

Newcastle kicked off their League Cup campaign at St James Park on Tuesday night, at 7.30pm behind closed doors.

People sometimes say that statistics are misleading but not tonight, as you can see below Blackburn dominated possession (64% v 36%), shots (14 v 5)and corners (10 v 3).

However, whilst always the most important thing is the result, in this case Steve Bruce can take little reassurance from a second string team that was expected to dominate and brush aside Blackburn.

For Newcastle fans looking to their team to go on and dictate play, they will still be waiting now… The second half saw United sink into a deeper malaise as Blackburn continued to see more of the ball and create chances.

The Magpies looking to build on the promise of that 2-0 win at West Ham on Saturday.
