'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Latics Set The Record Straight



Wigan Athletic have moved quickly to dispel rumours that Newcastle fans travelling to Saturdays game at the DW without a ticket will be allowed in as total rubbish

The rumours started to circulate following rash comments attributed to Newcastle manager Alan Pardew that appeared in the local papers up in the North East Tuesday afternoon

In an official statement on the Latics website Jonathan Jackson, Latics' Chief Executive said: 'Newcastle have received their full allocation of 4,500 tickets, the maximum allowed for visiting supporters under the DW Stadium Safety Certificate.

'The crowd will be a near sell out if sales carry on at the present rate and to suggest that any more tickets could be available, or that ticketless fans should travel, is both wrong and potentially dangerous.

'We strongly urge any fans without tickets not to travel because they will not be able to purchase tickets and therefore not gain entry into the ground.

'Moreover any Newcastle supporters found to be in any of the Home Stands will on Police advice be ejected to minimise the risk of public order and to ensure the safety of all supporters within the Stadium.

'We have contacted Newcastle United over the issue and have urged them to put out a similar message via their official communication channels.'
