Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew reveals that he and his players are out to avenge their heavy defeat from Wigan Athletic last season.

Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew has admitted that his side will be looking for revenge when they play Wigan Athletic later today.

Last season at the DW Stadium the Latics hammered Pardew's side 4-0, denting their Champions League prospects.

"They gave us the runaround last year when we were in good form and it was a big blow to our Champions League chances so it's a game where we need to take a slight bit of revenge," Pardew told the club's official website.

"They're on a high, for sure, and we've had our best result of the season so there'll be a real good feeling amongst the players and that'll make for a good game."

Newcastle are currently 13th in the Premier League, nine points clear of the relegation zone.
