Sam Allardyce will try his best to lead Newcastle squad tomorrow to make the third away win at Ewood Park. Newcastle have won their two previous meeting with them back in 2005-2006 and 2006-2007 season.
Last season United won 3-1 thanks to Obafemi Martins goals and Steven Taylor, while in 2005-2006 we also hit them by three goals through Shearer, Owen’s first goal for Newcastle and N’Zogbia.
Sam Allardyce in fact, never lost in his six visits to Blackburn with Bolton Wanderers, which is something the United boss can be proud of.
“Hopefully my record stays intact in the Premier League because my record there with Bolton Wanderers from six games was won three and drawn three.” Allardyce said to Chronicle, “In fact, I have not been defeated at Blackburn for a long time in the League, so I hope they carry that on for me tomorrow.”
Newcastle biggest lost at Blackburn 5-2, happens in 2002-2003 season when Nicos Dabizas was sent off. Newcastle goals coming from Shearer.
Sam Allardyce will keep in his mind, that tomorrow match was a derby for him just like what he thought when bring their Bolton squad to Ewood Park. This year he will have the backing of 6,000 of the travelling Toon Army in the Darwen Road End tomorrow afternoon.
“I don’t think we ever got so many supporters going from Bolton to Blackburn which is just 12 miles down the road.” Added Allardyce, “Hopefully my record stays intact in the Premier League because my record there with Bolton Wanderers from six games was won three and drawn three.”
