Newcastle 2 Wigan 1

Saturday 1 April 3pm

Not the greatest of matches but three well taken goals decided the game.

Thankfully two of them were for Newcastle United, a smart team goal finished off by Dwight Gayle and then Matt Ritchie showing determination and greta composure, to score the winner with his head after the ball came back off the woodwork.

In between we saw a very cool finish from Wigan player Jacobs, as he easily beat Jamaal Lascelles and then lifted the ball over Karl Darlow.
