Blackburn Rovers crashed out of the FA Cup after an exhausting encounter against Newcastle United.
The final score of the match after 120 minutes of action was 2-4. Rovers actually started the match in the worst possible fashion conceding in the 1st minute. Newcastle then extended their lead making it 0-2 midway into the first half.
Rovers clawed their way back into the match via Adam Armstrong, before Darragh Lenihan made it 2-2 on the stroke of half time.
Newcastle United got the curcial 3rd goal in extra time via a dubious goal which on 2nd look was clearly offside. After that the game was stretched and the toon snatch their 4th.
Newcastle will tackle Watford in the next round. Rovers can switch focus to Championship football.
