Match Preview

Pardew hopes Magpies can handle setbacks Manager Alan Pardew admits he will not know everything about his high-flying Newcastle team until they run into problems. Against all the odds, the Magpies head into Saturday`s Barclays Premier League clash with struggling Wigan unbeaten in 10 games in all competitions so far this season and sitting in fourth place in the table. While there was confidence within the camp before a ball was kicked that a squad shorn of Kevin Nolan and Jose Enrique - and Joey Barton soon followed them through the exit door - could still compete, Newcastle's rise to prominence has taken many by surprise. Few even within St James' Park expect the club to retain such a lofty status with Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea in successive weekends looming large on the horizon next month and beyond. Pardew has already seen how the likes of summer signings Yohan Cabaye and Gabriel Obertan can perform when things are going their way, but he admits he will only really see what backbone his new-look team has when they find themselves up against it. Asked if he still has much to learn about his team, Pardew said: "I think so and I think Saturday will provide some different problems because the crowd will be expectant. "We haven't really had that this year, them expecting us to win, so maybe our first misplaced pass will be greeted with jeers. They are the sort of psychological things we have got to overcome. "We might have a guy sent off, the ref might make a terrible decision - we haven't suffered that yet, so that's all to come and it's how we react to that." Many of the men who will do battle for the Magpies, of course, were in the side which more than made a fist of life back in the Premier League last season and the manager knows all about their resilience and character. But while the new boys are yet to face any kind of adversity, the manager is confident the homework he and his scouting team did before they signed them will pay dividends. Pardew said: "It was like with Cabaye when I saw him at Lille and when we scouted him - what was his character like when things were going against him? "It was very, very strong, so it's not a complete fluke. You have to make sure you are bringing in players who have that character. "Demba Ba at West Ham - if you speak to any West Ham fan, he never threw the towel in, he was always trying to retrieve a situation for them, and they were coming to the great pros we had here, the Sholas, the Alan Smiths, et cetera. "We have got that and it's very, very important when you have got a league where actually, there isn't much between us other than three or four sides. "If you can have that, it does give you a slight advantage." Manager Roberto Martinez believes Wigan have made it part of the club's DNA to defy the odds and he has urged the players to rediscover that mentality. Last season the Latics survived relegation from the Barclays Premier League with a victory on the final day of the season to extend their top-flight stay to a seventh season. Having begun the current campaign positively Martinez's side are currently in a slump of five successive league defeats. They travel to Newcastle as rank outsiders against a team who appear to be defying the odds at the moment. But Martinez believes those are exactly the sort of statistics the club have been battling against ever since they made their way up through the leagues following their formation in 1932. "When you play for Wigan you need to be able to defy the odds and that is the way we have always played our football," said the Spaniard. "I feel we are capable of responding to adversity and that is what we have to do on Saturday. "Don't get me wrong we don't want to be in our current position but we know at the moment it doesn't mean anything now because it could be a reflection of who you have played and what injuries you have. "We know where we are and what we have to correct. The next game is a massive football occasion and we are ready for that. "At Wigan you learn to push yourself to the maximum. "We have been seven seasons in the Premier League and we have to give everything and more to keep that going."

Match Report

Cabaye first sinks Latics Yohan Cabaye picked a fine time to score his first goal for Newcastle as the Frenchman's 80th-minute strike secured a 1-0 win over Wigan at St James' Park. The summer signing from Lille curved home a knock back by substitute Sylvain Marveaux to finally end the resistance of the visitors, who have now lost six games in a row. Meanwhile, Alan Pardew's men continue to ride high after stretching their unbeaten Barclays Premier League start to nine games despite struggling for much of the afternoon. The Magpies may have been forgiven for expecting an easy day as Roberto Martinez's men ventured north on the back of five straight losses and a reputation for defensive mishaps. But, with Hugo Rodallega starting his first game after a month out with a knee injury, Roberto Martinez's men were far from over-awed and dominated the early stages. Rodallega had a first minute shot blocked by Fabricio Coloccini and Mohamed Diame also struck the legs of former Latic Ryan Taylor in a lively opening. Wigan should have gone ahead in the fifth minute when Rodallega headed down for Victor Moses to volley a rising shot which was superbly tipped away by Tim Krul. Wigan had another glorious chance in the 15th minute when David Jones send Rodallega galloping clear but the striker screwed a right-foot shot wide of target. At the back, Antolin Alcaraz continued to make up for his nightmare against Bolton last week with a superb saving tackle to deny Leon Best a shooting chance in the Latics box. Newcastle had their first clear chance in the 33rd minute when Best met a Gutierrez cross with a bouncing shot in front of goal which was superbly parried by Al Habsi. And five minutes before half-time Pardew's men had another chance when Ben Watson barged Gutierrez on the edge of the box and Taylor curled the resulting free-kick just wide. The home side made a brighter start to the second half and almost went ahead after 50 minutes when Demba Ba met Taylor's left-wing cross with a flashing header which Al Habsi gathered well. The home side were beginning to dominate bit were still struggling to create clear-cut chances as Wigan's much-maligned defence held firm. Cabaye and half-time substitute Hatem Ben Arfa both had chances blocked in the box in quick succession before Gary Caldwell booted clear. Playing much deeper, the visitors were clearly intent first and foremost on safeguarding a point, with Rodallega given scant support on his rare forays forward. The frustration was beginning to tell for the home side as Wigan got back in the match, and Crusat was not far from finding the head of Rodallega in the box in the 78th minute. A scything run down the left by Ben Arfa moments later ended in a low shot which was blocked well by Al Habsi as the Magpies made a belated bid to wrest back the momentum. And they seized it in style in the 80th minute when Marveaux played the ball back to Cabaye who curled a right foot shot past Al Habsi from the edge of the box. The visitors still had time to push for an equaliser, but Moses trickled a cross across the face of goal and Diame headed a good 88th-minute chance just wide.
