ON Sunday I asked if we could trust Norwich. The answer was yes – and they didn't let us down.
Tonight I ask the same question about Newcastle – but the answer is different.
Alan Pardew's men are on a terrible run and even at home to Wigan it's difficult to put much faith in them.
Newcastle are as big as 11-10 at BetVictor with but that's because they have suffered four defeats in a row – including losses at home to West Ham and Swansea.
Pardew's squad has been rocked by injuries and he's still without the likes of Hatem Ben Arfa, Johan Cabaye and Steven Taylor while James Perch is banned.
Wigan arrive on Tyneside on the back of a thrilling 3-2 win over Reading and they'll have backers at 29-10 with Stan James.
It tempts me but maybe the best shout is for a draw at 12-5 with Skybet because the Latics aren’t convincing enough on the road. They have won two and lost four but there have been two 2-2 draws in the last three meetings of the sides at St James's Park.
In normal circumstances a Newcastle win would be the way to go but they haven't been their usual selves and may struggle until star turns Cabaye and Ben Arfa return.
But up front they still have deadly duo Demba Ba and Papiss Cisse and they could test a makeshift back four missing Ivan Ramis and Antolin Alcaraz. Skipper Gary Caldwell will face a late fitness test and if he fails to make it that's three centre-halves down for Roberto Martinez.
Arouna Kone is 11-4 at Paddy Power to net while Franco di Santos, who sparked the recovery against Reading, is the same price.
Hereford deserve respect after beating Shrewsbury in the last round but that was on home soil and they're missing a few first-choice players, with top scorer Ryan Bowman facing a fitness test.
In La Liga Sevilla are 4-5 with Ladbrokes and Coral to beat Real Valladolid at home and it looks worth taking although they have some selection problems. Sevilla have won four of their last five at home while Real have lost their last two on the road, 3-0 at Real Betis and 2-1 at Getafe.
Wigan draw no bet
(7-4, Paddy Power)
(4-5, Coral, BetVictor)
