Kyle McFadzean insists the pressure is on Newcastle United with Blackburn Rovers ready to try and cause an FA Cup upset.

The Magpies travel to Ewood Park on Tuesday night with a place in the fifth round up for grabs. Rovers dumped out West Ham United and Leicester City in last year's domestic competitions and will be hoping for another memorable night.

With the Premier League side heavy favourites to win, McFadzean insists Rovers have nothing to lose. They will relish the occasion and want to put on an impressive performance for the supporters.

"I'm looking forward to it, the big boys are in town," he said.

"We just have to go out and enjoy it. We have nothing to lose, we want to enjoy it and hopefully win. 

"It's the FA Cup, it's magic. They have more to lose than us, we have to work hard and try to get the win.

"We have to relish it, I can't wait. This is what football is all about, the magic times and the FA Cup. The league is the main thing but everything else is a bonus.

"They have everything to lose, not us, they're the big boys. It's a free game for us. We know it will be a tough game but if fans see we are willing to die for the shirt it will help.

"I got to the fifth round with Crawley once from non-league, that was a good run. I think I've been at this stage twice, hopefully, we'll get one more."

McFadzean hadn't played a Championship minute since November when he arrived at Rovers. That quickly changed as he was thrown into the deep end against Stoke City.

Since then, he's started every match and shown little sign of fatigue despite being 36. The defender has loved every minute of his time at Ewood Park and has enjoyed working with new boss Eustace.

"We haven't had much time to train but it's been good, I've been playing a lot of games.

"It's been really good, we haven't lost many. Getting through the first couple of games was tough but I feel like I'm getting in my groove.

"It was a no-brainer for me coming here. I love it, we just need a few better results. I've loved every minute, it's been great.

"The gaffer has been really good since he came in. We haven't done lots in training but we know what he wants and I think the lads have taken it on board.

"I think we are getting better with each game. It's a new style, we want to mix it up a bit more. We have done well and I think we're getting better.

"At the minute, it's a fight but we want to get away from that. We need to get three points. There were a few that hadn't played much and you can see the fitness coming back.

"We have some big games coming up and we need points on the board."
