  • A thrilling game ends with a priceless victory for Wigan, with Kone's late strike moving the Latics to within three points of 17th placed Aston Villa. Newcastle fans will be fuming after McManaman's horror challenge on Haidara in the first half, and defeat for the Magpies leaves them in 13th place, just six points off the drop zone. Thanks for your company this afternoon and I'll look forward to seeing you all another time!

  • FT: Wigan 2 Newcastle 1.

  • Gutierrez fails to connect upon controlling the ball, and Wigan break shortly after with Kone's curling effort deflected behind for a late corner.

  • Sissoko makes a stunning clearance for Newcastle, sprinting across the park as Kone takes the ball around Elliot, with the Newcastle man retrieiving the ball in impressive fashion.

  • A remarkable goalmouth scramble ensures from the corner, before Kone's final touch steers the ball home from close range! Can the Latics hang on to what would be a priceless victory?


  • Kone's woeful touch derails Wigan's momentum, but Boyce keeps their attack alive, with Yanga-Mbiwa clearing somewhat wildly at the near post.

  • Newcastle threaten down the left, with Tiote's delivery knocked down by Marveaux, before Alcaraz hurls himself forward to clear ahead of the lurking Cisse.

  • Ameobi controls Perch's pin-point ball well enough, but his ball into Cisse is excellent, with the striker only able to poke wide from close range. That was a terrific chance for Newcastle.

  • Di Santo is nudged off the ball by Yanga-Mbiwa, but it appeared a fair tackle and the referee refuses to award a penalty, despite the roars of the home faifthful.

  • Tiote is pickpocketed by Maloney, but his final ball is cut out once again by Yanga-Mbiwa, with both teams looking lively now on the counter attack.

  • Alan Pardew will be having kittens as he sees Tiote go to ground in distress, but he is back up shortly after and seems to be fine to continue.

  • Di Santo tussles with Gutierrez and valiantly reclaims the ball, before eventually running out of options as Perch steps in to intervene.

  • Maloney's curling free-kick looked to have caught Elliot out, but he sidesteps brilliantly to make his save look far easier than it was.

  • With that collision, Beausejour's game is wrapped up, as Di Santo takes his place.

  • McCarthy is crucially tackled by Yanga-Mbiwa, before Perch slides in on Beausejour and concedes a free-kick 25 yards out.

  • As Maloney carelessly plays the ball out of play, the atmosphere is electric as both teams push for a winner, with Newcastle looking stronger and stronger as they carry the momentum from their equaliser.

  • No advantage is played when Maloney is hauled down, as Cisse loses quickly possession swiftly afterwards, with the former livid with Halsey as play is waved on.

  • Scharner looks to pick out Beausejour with a long ball, but Perch intercepts impressively as Newcastle up their urgency all over the pitch when Wigan are in possession.

  • It's a wonderful goal from Newcastle, as Cisse helps the ball into Santon's path, with the right-back calmly setting himself up before firing past Joel to level things up. 1-1 and game on again!
