  • Full Time. That's it. Newcastle have the 3-0 win. Wigan did well given the early sending off but the result never looked in doubt from that turning point. Ba is the two-goal hero and the pressure eases at St James' Park.

  • Another superb run from Stam down the flank but Krul claims the cross.

    90+2
  • Four minutes added time.

    90
  • Ferguson does brilliantly down the wing before cutting the ball back for Cisse to get a shot on goal but it's a scuffed effort that's easy for Al Habsi to claim.

    90
  • He is going down the tunnel. No need to risk him at this stage so we are 10 against 10 for the final few minutes. More injury woe for Newcastle.

    87
  • Delay as Ba is injured. Looks like it could be a hamstring problem.

    86
  • Newcastle have a two-on-one on the break and Ba tries to find Cisse in the centre but the offside flag goes up. Poor from Cisse not to stay onside.

    85
  • McManaman on for Di Santo.

    83
  • Jones inexplicably takes it short and the ball is soon back with Al Habsi. Damage limitation from Wigan now it seems.

    82
  • Marveaux fouls McCarthy. Free-kick in a good area.

    81
  • Crowd are now angry as McCarthy goes in late on Anita. Fortunate to avoid a booking.

    78
  • Ameobi booked immediately. Loses the ball and then pulls back his man in frustration.

    77
  • Gutierrez replaced by Sammy Ameobi.

    76
  • Krul nearly spills the ball at Kone's feet but Newcastle clear.

    75
  • Kone with another enthusiastic run but his left-footed shot is blocked.

    73
  • The teenage midfielder receives the ball on the right angle of the box, cuts inside onto his left and curls a shot into the far corner and beyond Al Habsi. Quality finish from the substitute.

  • Goal! Gael Bigirimana!

    71
  • Cisse with a left-footed shot high over the bar. Scooped it. He's still looking a shadow of his former self in front of goal.

    69
  • Plenty of possession from Wigan without really threatening. The home crowd are a little frustrated that the second-half goal glut they expected looks unlikely though.

    68
  • Di Santo booked for dissent.
