Lawro Predicts - Newcastle v Latics



Mark 'Lawro' Lawrenson has done his weekly round of Premier League predictions for the BBC, the Match of the Day pundit is forecasting that Saturdays Premier League clash between Newcastle United and Wigan Athletic at St. James` Park will end in a home win, let's take a look at his reasons:

Newcastle v Wigan

Newcastle maintained their unbeaten start to the season at home to Tottenham on Sunday with an excellent display. Spurs were twice in front but Alan Pardew's men just kept coming back and eventually reaped their reward.

They've got great belief and an excellent home record. Under Pardew, St James' Park is a far tougher place to go than it has been for a long time. They've got four strikers vying for two places - or sometimes one - and the competition is certainly working.

In the summer, they sold big and brought small in terms of fees but it's working and Mike Ashley will feel vindicated. He's finally getting some of his huge investment back.

Next up is a Wigan team you just can't predict - they're consistently inconsistent during games, let alone from game to game, and their defence is all over the place. I can't see them coming away with anything other than a loss.

Prediction: 2-0


Its going to be difficult but, we always surprise when we are down, I`m going for 1-1
