St. James' Park
Latics go into this game having already beaten the other two North East teams in the premiership, Sunderland and Middlesbrough
Early season form sees Latics in third place and Newcastle two points behind in seventh
Titus Bramble and Antoine Sibierski both make an early return to their previous club
Both players have settled in well at the Latics and have given good performances in all the games they've played in this season
Expect Bramble to get lots of stick from the Geordie faithful
Emre is out following an injury picked up in Wednesdays Carling Cup win over Barnsley
Long term injuries are Ramage (knee), Carr (hamstring), Barton (foot), Babayaro and Damien Duff
Solano may or may not have moved to West Ham depending on too many scenarios to go into here
Owen isnt 100% fit but should play
Newcastle (from): Given, Harper, Solano, Enrique, N`Zogbia, Rozehnal, Taylor, Cacapa, Edgar, Huntington, Milner, Geremi, Butt, Smith, Pattison, Viduka, Martins, Ameobi, Owen.
Can be dynamic and could prove to be a handful for Granqvist and Bramble
Valencia doubtful, Sibierski back in training and should be fit, Taylor definately out
Kirkland, Granqvist, Hall, Sibierski, Camara, Heskey, Kilbane, Koumas, Brown, Landzaat, Aghahowa, Boyce, Scharner, Bent, Bramble, Cotterill, Skoko, Melchiot, Pollitt.
Bags of quality and will dance his way through the Magpies static defence
Newcastle United 2-1 Wigan Athletic (McCulloch)
Steve Bennett (Kent)
Four games so far this season with 13 yellow cards and 3 reds
Heart says Geordies 1-2 Latics
Head says 1-1
