Sebastien Bassong Starts For Newcastle


Joe Kinnear, as expected, has made one change from the team that was beaten 2-1 last Sunday at Fulham.


22 year-old 6’2″ Frenchman Sebastien Bassong replaces Brazilian Claudio Cacapa in central defense.

Michael Owen once again has to settle for a place on the bench, and of course Steven Taylor (groin) misses his second successive game.

The Newcastle bench is again very strong, with Steve Harper, Michael Owen, Danny Guthrie, Charles N’Zogbia, Geremi, Claudio Cacapa, and Andy Carroll all available to Joe Kinnear, during this vital game for the club.

For Wigan, star strikers Amr Zaki (hamstring) and Emile Heskey (hamstring) both miss out, and that must give Newcastle a chance to record their 3rd clean sheet of the season – hopefully.

TEAMS

Newcastle United: Shay Given, Habib Beye, Jose Enrique, Fabricio Coloccini, Sebastien Bassong, Nicky Butt (c), Joey Barton, Jonas Gutierrez, Damien Duff, Oba Martins, Shola Ameobi
Subs: Steve Harper, Michael Owen, Danny Guthrie, Charles N’Zogbia, Geremi, Claudio Cacapa, Andy Carroll

Wigan: Chris Kirkland, Paul Scharner, Maynor Figueroa, Emmerson Boyce, Titus Bramble, Olivier Kapo, Lee Cattermole (c), Antonio Valencia, Wilson Palacios, Ryan Taylor, Henri Camera
Subs: Michael Pollitt, Kevin Kilbane, Michael Brown, Daniel de Ridder, Tomasz Cywka, Tomasz Kupisz, Jonathan Routledge

Referee: Andre Marriner
Attendance: tbc

    Glad to see bassong back in the team. I think our playing staff seriously underestimate him. He’s looked the most comfortable defender all season imo.

    Bit miffed to see carroll on the bench. That kid’s a waste of space.

    I think we will be to strong for wigan today. When Jonas and Duff get going they will be a hand full. Good to see competion for places, the team dosn’t pick its self. Would like see N’Zog and Guthrie get a run out.
