Pre Wigan: Jonas
As one of those grounds where we have no real history, the JJB hasn`t been a happy place for the NUFC fans who have trekked over to watch us lose time and time again since the Piemen got promoted to the Premier League. Jonas Gutierrez however has made it a key priority to assist the lads as they attempt to both score and win at the rugby ground. Jonas said:
"What I have found is that every game is as hard as each other. It does not matter what the size of the club or the stadium is, you know it will be a hard game. But you know that your duty as a Newcastle player is to win them."
Our Argentinean international also hailed the returning pair of the Duke and the Duffer, quipping:
"Mark is very important to us and to the fans as well. Damien is also a very talented player. You can`t have enough players who have talent, because everybody plays well when you know there are good players on the bench."
