We are absolutely delighted to be sponsoring the FA Cup 3rd Round tie at Ewood Park this evening which pits two clubs with a rich history in the FA Cup, Blackburn Rovers and Newcastle United. Both teams have coincidentally won the FA Cup six times with Blackburn`s last triumph back in 1928 against Huddersfield Town, Newcastle winning it last in 1955 against Manchester City. So high time one of us won it again!
This Evenings Tie To Be Decided This Evening
Midweek games under the lights against big teams such as Newcastle United are always a great occasion and we are sure the evenings clash will be no different. The two teams drew the first game at Newcastle 1-1 so the tie will be decided this evening, whether that be after 90 minutes, extra time or penalties. The manager at Rovers, Tony Mowbray, is from the North East, playing for and managing Middlesbrough for many years, so this game probably takes on extra significance for him, and I am sure Rovers will be going all out to be in the 4th Round on Saturday week.
