West Ham United No2 Neil McDonald expects Newcastle United to stay up.

McDonald, who also spent time at St James's Park during his playing career, has backed the Magpies to retain their Premier League status.

"I've said before, I think Newcastle have got enough to stay up," he said.

"But everyone is slightly still under pressure with the result that Wigan have had so everyone needs to do the best in the next game to try and get the points on the board so they can't be caught, but personally I think they will be okay."
