Prediction – Here’s Rafa’s Team To Beat Wigan Athletic


It looks like Isaac Hayden, Grant Hanley, Paul Dummett and Daryl Murphy are all fit to play tomorrow against Wigan Athletic at home.

It seems that only Ciaran Clark and DeAndre Yedlin (plus Rolando Aarons and Jamie Sterry) are still not fit, with Ciaran picking up that knee injury against Fulham almost three weeks ago.

American right back DeAndre Yedlin may be out a few more weeks with his thigh injury.

Isaac Hayden and Dwight Gayle – could both start tomorrow

The other good news Rafa delivered today was that Dwight Gayle has looked good in training and looks fully over his hamstring problems; that could be really good news for Newcastle.

If we can get Dwight scoring goals again in these final eight games of the season we should be good for promotion – but it’s still by no means a certainty.

Here’s the side we think Rafa will start tomorrow in a game we have to win.

Darlow
Anita Lascelles (c) Hanley Dummett
Shelvey Hayden
Ritchie Perez Gouffran
Gayle

We have Dwight Gayle starting again and Isaac Hayden back in the team after he has been out for several weeks with that ankle injury of his.

We put Perez in the number 10 position in preference to Mo Diame and hopefully Ayoze will be in goal-scoring form tomorrow.

What team would you start tomorrow?

    Let’s hope the rest has done our over worked players some good. Just hope they realise there break is over when we kick off. I expect more back and sideways football, our defence is our key down to Rafa’s negative football. Hope Gayle is back in good form to catch them on the break.

    Rafa Confirmed Bingo (it’s been too long since I could say that!)

    Darlow
    Anita Lascelles (c) Hanley Dummett
    Shelvey Hayden
    Ritchie Perez Atsu
    Gayle

    I want Atsu and Perez in, but Diame and Gouffran could be the starters. It would be good to see Mbemba get a match while Clark is out, but I just don’t see it happening. Happy to be surprised, though.

    Prediction is either 3-1 or 4-0, can’t decide. HWTL
