Ba hat-trick keeps Magpies flying

Published Add your comment

Demba Ba announced himself on Tyneside in style with a hat-trick in Newcastle's 3-1 victory over Blackburn.

The Senegal international struck twice inside three first-half minutes and then added a third nine minutes after the restart to ease the Magpies to a comfortable win.

Junior Hoilett had pulled one back for the visitors after 37 minutes, but they never looked extending their run of five successive league victories at St James' Park.
