Mark 'Lawro' Lawrenson has done his weekly round of Premier League predictions for the BBC, the Match of the Day pundit is forecasting that Saturday's clash between Wigan Athletic and Newcastle United at the DW Stadium will end in an away win, let's take a look at his reasons:
Wigan v Newcastle
This is an interesting game because, with six wins on the bounce, Newcastle are undoubtedly the Premier League's form team.
They look like a Champions League side at the moment, and although their run has to end at some point, they have hit their stride at exactly the right time and they are playing like they think they can beat whoever they are up against.
The Magpies have benefited from being able to play their front three of Papiss Demba Cisse, Demba Ba and Hatem Ben Arfa in all six of those games, and you can see why Alan Pardew's men are playing with a swagger right now because they are creating stacks of chances.
They get goals from everywhere and, even if they are under a bit of pressure at the DW Stadium, they can break so quickly because those front three players are like lightning.
Wigan were on a really good run themselves until their defeat by Fulham last weekend but, because they have struggled for so much of the season, the suspicion with them is that slip-up might be the start of another poor run.
I'm going for the draw, 1-1, should suit both teams
