Ticketless Toon fans told not to travel

Published Add your comment

Newcastle have urged supporters without tickets not to travel to the club's vital Barclays Premier League clash with Wigan on Saturday amid security fears.

Manager Alan Pardew earlier said as many fans as possible should attend the DW Stadium in what could prove a crucial game in the Magpies' bid to achieve a top-four finish. The Latics insisted there would be no increase in the visitors' 4,500-ticket allocation, and expressed concern about travelling fans attempting to buy seats in the home stands.

However, Newcastle have since issued a statement advising supporters without tickets to stay on Tyneside. It said: "With regards to our Barclays Premier League fixture at Wigan on Saturday, Newcastle United would like to make it known that all tickets for the away section of the DW Stadium have sold out."
