Blackburn were very poor in December, they were winless throughout their fixtures with 4 defeats and 2 draws. They are sitting 22nd in the Championship table with 21 points, 3 points behind Cardiff City outside of the zone. They will need more than a miracle to win this one despite playing at home.

Meanwhile, Newcastle had a delightful December as they went back top of the Championship table with 52 points. They were victorious in 4 of their last 5 games and lost once taking 12 points from a possible 15. They will need a win in this one to maintain their lead in the table and keep focus on their promotion ambition.
