Lawro Predicts - Newcastle v Latics

Lawro Predicts - Newcastle v Latics



Former Liverpool defender, Mark Lawrenson casts his eye over the next round of Premier League fixtures and he is predicting that the Latics visit to St. James' Park on Monday evening will end in a home win for Newscastle, let's take a look at his reasons why:

Newcastle v Wigan

Newcastle will hope the extra couple of days before this game mean they might get a few players back to fitness, because they are really struggling with injuries at the moment.

Alan Pardew's side are on a really poor run of defeats too, having lost four in a row in the league, but they actually played well against Stoke on Wednesday night and went 1-0 up - before a lack of belief cost them.

Pardew is under a bit of pressure and one or two of his players need to take a look at themselves, because they are the same players who performed so well last season.

I would suggest they need a little bit of luck to get back on track, because they will not find things easy against Wigan, despite the Latics' inconsistency.

This is probably the best squad Roberto Martinez has had in his time at the DW Stadium. He has made some good signings and they showed against Manchester City that they can give anyone a game.

Newcastle do not have a great record at St James' Park so far this season but I think the crowd might be a big factor for them on Monday night.

Prediction: 2-0


I'm going for a 1-1 draw, hopefully we can build on our recent performances and get at least a point from the game
