Newcastle Vs Latics

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

Vital Quotes:

Newcastle United Team News:

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.

Player to watch: Martins

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.

Player to watch: Koumas

Bags of quality and will dance his way through the Magpies static defence

2-1 to the Latics (or maybe 1-1) Heskey to score
worbo
Draw would be OK
number6
Draw would do me, but I'd love the win, another two fingers to the so called experts
worbo
I'm sure that drives the players on as well. Let's hope our boys can handle the big crowd, they should be able to by now. Don't we usually get beat up there?
number6
Lost both Prem matches at St James' but done them down here in both returns
