Blackburn will arrive at St James' Park boasting an enviable record, remarkably having won there on each of their last five league visits. Alan Pardew: "It's an amazing stat, and I couldn't tell you why. "All I do know is that for us, it's an important game because it would mean a really great start rather than a good start if we win, and that's what we want. "They were very good last weekend in a game that could have got away from them. They have got some big, big players. "They are quite direct and that side of it, we will have to cope well with. "They have gone away from the football side of it, to an extent, so for us, it's about making sure we compete on that level and making sure we play our football."
