Newcastle continue steady climb winning at relegation scrappers Wigan

Wigan 0 – Newcastle 1 (Premier League, January 2, 2011) (MOTD highlights.) Terrible Wigan defending gifted Newcastle an 18th minute opener, Barton stole possession in the Latics’ box and shot, Al Habsi parry fell to Lovenkrands who steered an effort on the post and Shola Ameobi was on hand to tap home a the third attempt.
