Blackburn out of drop zone

Published Add your comment

Blackburn lifted themselves out of the Barclays Premier League relegation zone with a 3-0 victory over Newcastle at Ewood Park.

Two goals in the space of five second-half minutes from Benni McCarthy and Jason Roberts lit up what was otherwise a poor game lacking in quality.

Roberts added the third four minutes from time, just after Nicky Butt had been sent off for a second bookable offence for clattering into David Dunn.
