3 Dec 12 | St. James’ Park | Monday
Newcastle United enjoyed a one man advantage against Wigan for most part of the match as Maynor Figueroa was sent off for a tackle on Cisse on the 12th minute. But it wasn’t still as free as it should have been for them. And they lost 3 players to injury in David Santon, Ba & Tiote. But the highlight was definitely the goal from Gael Bigirimana. What a strike to get Newcastle’s third.
