Wigan Athletic Vs Newcastle United Highlights:A late goal from Arouna Kone edged out the victory for Wigan when they battled for their lives against Newcastle United and just barely got themselves a crucial 2-1 victory.
3 points that will give them a little time and space to breath and stay outside of the last 2 relegation spots in the English Premier League.
Newcastle leaked a goal in the 19th minute when McManaman got his way past Haidara down the right flank and launched a cross over to Jean Beausejour who blasted a shot under the legs of Rob Elliot until finding the back of the net.
Wigan tried to hold on to their lead for as much as they could but just as the visiting team was pushing upfront it was becoming increasingly had for the team guided by Roberto Martinez to stay in the lead.
The equalizer was found by Davide Santon at the 72nd minute when the defender whipped a low driven effort which went past Joel and got its way into the bottom right side corner of Joel.
Arouna Kone had the last laugh though when he scored the winner in the last few minutes of the match when he took full advantage of a scramble inside the penalty box of Newcastle which lead to a loose ball and Kone scored from point blank range.
