Newcastle United have sold out St James's Park for tomorrow's game against Blackburn Rovers.

The club has an average home attendance in the Championship of 50,617.

And the gate at 52,405-capacity St James's Park against Blackburn – who have been given 1,600 tickets – is set to exceed that figure.

Newcastle revealed on Twitter today that they had sold out the fixture against Owen Coyle's third-bottom side.

United tweeted: "Tomorrow's game against @Rovers is now sold out. Thanks for your magnificent support!"

Only five Premier League clubs – Manchester United, Arsenal, West ham United, Manchester City and Liverpool – have had higher average crowds than relegated Newcastle this season.
