At the 58-minute mark, Mark Gillespie made a double save as he parried a long-range effort from Joe Rankin-Costello.

After a disappointing counter-attack in which Joelinton inadvisedly took a wayward shot, Steve Bruce brought Allan Saint-Maximin on for the Brazilian.

It was shades of last season with Newcastle looking bereft of ideas in the final third while struggling to string together more than two passes.

However, it’s a win nonetheless as Ryan Fraser’s first-half goal is enough to advance to the third round of the Carabao Cup.

Blackburn pushed for a winner with Newcastle just unable to stamp any authority on the match.

Newcastle continued to struggle with possession as the midfield duo of Sean Longstaff and Dan Barlaser were practically non-existent.

Mark Gillespie came to the rescue again as he blocked a late shot by substitute Harry Chapman and Adam Armstrong’s follow up was knocked out for a corner.
