Newcastle keeper Krul relieved after victory over Wigan

Newcastle United goalkeeper Tim Krul was delighted with victory over Wigan Athletic.

Demba Ba scored twice, the first from a disputed penalty which saw the Latics' Maynor Figueroa sent off, before Gael Bigirimana's first senior goal rounded off a 3-0 win.

It ended a run of four straight defeat for the Magpies and Krul told Sky Sports 1: "It's a massive win for us, we knew we needed the three points. The pressure was on but the intensity we had at Stoke, we did that again and started really well.

"We must be proud, we can take a lot of confidence from this - we needed this. I think tonight we showed what a quality team we are."
