Fraser strike sends Newcastle through

Last updated on .From the section League Cup

Ryan Fraser
Newcastle have reached the third round for the first time since 2016

Ryan Fraser scored on his debut to help Newcastle beat Championship side Blackburn Rovers in the Carabao Cup.

Fraser latched on to a clever Miguel Almiron through ball and slotted home midway through the first half.

Blackburn dominated possession throughout but lacked the cutting edge to prise open a stubborn Newcastle defence.

Steve Bruce’s side hung on to earn a trip to Morecambe in the third round next week.

The hosts made 10 changes from the side that confidently beat West Ham in the Premier League on Saturday and it showed in a disjointed performance.

Indeed, it was often Blackburn who looked the more impressive with their slick passing and clever interplay.

But Newcastle had the crucial goalscoring quality in the shape of summer signing Fraser.

The former Bournemouth man was otherwise quiet but he gave an indication of what he can do with a composed finish.

Joelinton had a goal disallowed for offside in the second half but otherwise Newcastle’s second string rarely threatened Thomas Kaminski’s goal.

However, Newcastle fans will not mind and will be excited at the prospect of Fraser linking up again with Callum Wilson as the Magpies host Brighton in the league on Sunday.
