Wigan Athletic and Newcastle United have met 16 times in all competitions, the first encounter coming back in 1954 when non-league Latics held top flight Newcastle 2-2 up at St James’ Park in an FA cup 3rd round tie, we lost the replay at Springfield Park 2-3 but the game went down in folklore and is still talked about by the older generation of Latics fans.
We have an equal record against the Geordies
Latics 6 wins, Newcastle 6, draws 4
In the Premier League its much the same with five wins each and two draws.
