Newcastle won their first game in four matches against Wigan Athletic to maintain their lead at the top but had to work hard to put away their relentless opponents, narrowly maintaining getting the job done with a 2-1 win.
The winning goal was scored by winger Matt Ritchie in the second half after a Michael Jacobs equaliser early in the second half had cancelled out Dwight Gayle’s opener.
However, it was Ritchie’s rebound header from close range that will be remembered not only because it was the winner, but a pretty sweet one too.
