Blackburn countered impressively, with a goal from former Newcastle striker Adam Armstrong in the 33rd minute and Darragh Lenihan levelling  it with a header just before half-time ended.

Isaac Hayden – brought on when half-time substitute Jamaal Lascelles went off injured just before the hour mark – went close to putting the visitors back in front in the second half of normal time when his header hit the post.
