HALF-TIME: WIGAN 4 NEWCASTLE 0

GOAL DI SANTO (4-0)!!!
McCarthy is perhaps a little lucky to only be shown a yellow card for a launching challenge on Cabaye. Simpson is then also booked for protesting that it was not a red card.
GOAL MALONEY (3-0)!!!
Santon, who has been switched to right wing-back, is clearly tripped by Alcaraz and the Wigan defender goes in the book. Free-kick to Newcastle 30 yards from goal.
GOAL MOSES (2-0)!!!
GOAL MOSES (1-0)!!!
Nik Rai says: "Reckon it will be 3-1 to Newcastle, purely on the fact that Cisse is on fire at the moment and Ben Arfa is so skilful."
Barry Taylor says: "It is going to come down to who wants it more. Think the Toon have this in the bag. Double for Cisse and Cabaye with one!!"
Paul Wright says: "2-1 to the Toon! Ben Arfa and Cisse to keep our Champions League dream alive!!"
Zak Pennick says: "I think it will be a 3-0 win to Newcastle. Ben Arfa and Cisse."
Sky Bet have been in touch, if you fancy a flutter. The bookies say: "Wigan are 13/8 to claim a big win in their bid to avoid the drop. Newcastle 6/4 are just as desperate for the points while the draw is 5/2. Goal machine Papiss Cisse is 4/1 to score the first goal while Hugo Rodallega and Franco di Santo are 8/1 shots for the home side."
Pete Hack says: "Going to be a tough game today, I reckon. I'll take 2-1 to the Toon with goals from Cisse and Ba."
Phil Hodgson says: "Realistically, you've got to back the Toon, nearly the best form in the league and we've conceded very few in the last six. Wigan can't score at home, with less than a goal a game average. 2-1 Newcastle (that's being kind too) AND I fancy Ba to end the drought!"
Michael Ewart says: "Might as well be a home game for the Toon today with Wigan's attendances, tricky game however Newcastle just to edge it 1-0 Demba Ba!"
Adam Etherington says: "Because both teams are pushing for something important, it'll be a close game. However, I think Newcastle will be the stronger side all game. 2-0 Newcastle!"
