Former Liverpool defender and current Match of the Day pundit Mark ‘Lawro` Lawrenson has done his weekly round of predictions for the BBC and he is predicting that the game between Newcastle United and Wigan Athletic at St. James` Park will end in a home win for the Geordies, let`s see what his reasons are:
Newcastle v Wigan
Well, these two teams are fairly similar to each other – you’re not sure what you’re going to get from one week to the next.
Newcastle will be without midfielder Hatem Ben Arfa for a while now – he provided them with something a little bit different. And striker Andy Carroll blows hot and cold – as most youngsters do.
Wigan have the capacity to collapse or be really good.
Lawro usually takes the easy option and plumps for the home team, I think it`s what his mate Hanson calls playing the percentages. I think we are good for a draw at least, our away form has been very good so far this season, so I`m going for a 1-1 draw.
