Referee for Saturday is David Coote - no wins

David Coote, will be Wigan Athletic's referee for the fourth time this season. The previous three games have all ended in losses for Latics, but he hasn't done much better for Newcastle either.

So far this season, David Coote has shown 114 yellow cards and six red in 33 matches.

The Nottinghamshire-based official took charge of Latics losses at Sheff Wed in September, at Rotherham on Boxing Day, At Fulham in February and at the DW Stadium against Reading in November.

He also refereed in Newcastle United's home defeat to Blackburn in November and their Emirates FA Cup loss at Oxford in January.

So he is at least going to see one or both teams not lose on Saturday.

Mr Coote will be assisted by Mark Dwyer and James Wilson. Robert Jones will be the fourth official.
