Newcastle V Wigan Preview

K Updated

Working Wonders - MartinezNot so long after signing an eight year contract at Newcastle, the manager finds himself two points above the relegation zone and in the midst of a dire run of form which has seen them pick up just one point from their last five premier league games.

In fact they have managed to lose their last four games on the row, including two home games so just what is wrong at St James' Park?


The injury list is crippling them and for that matter Wigan are not doing much better. In fact both of these teams head the injury list for the amount of players receiving treatment with Wigan just edging out Newcastle by nine players to eight on the treatment table.

A princely total of seventeen players unable to play for both teams means this is going to be a match up of who has the better players to come in and "do a job".

For more info on players out injured check out the excellent physioroom.com.

What is very revealing is that West Bromwich have only one long term absentee and are top of the "injury" table which might go some way to explaining their outstanding recent form.

For Newcastle the big losses are Taylor, Ben Arfa, Ameobi; Obertan and Cabaye and Caldwell is a big loss for Wigan

All of the money is going on a Newcastle win tonight which is why I have backed the away team at 11/4 for our rolling accumulator. The draw is enticing and with that many injuries you could make an argument for backing the home team but the odds here dictate that we lump on Wigan to pull off an away win and as it is only our second bet on the accumulator we can take the risk of losing our £2.75 bet.

Wigan performed magnificently against Man City and are in reasonably good form – they have beaten Spurs away from home and drawn with Everton and Stoke so there have been some good performances of late.

Newcastle have Demba Ba and they still have a reasonably strong team but they are paying for the lack of transfer activity in the summer with only one signing and if they had bad luck with injuries, which they have, then they were always likely to finish lower in the league than last season.

Get on Wigan at 11/4 at Coral
