Roberto Martinez Pleased With Latics Progress

Wigan Athletic's first game played at their Austrian training camp ended up a 1-1 draw against a well drilled Hannover `96 of the Bundesliga.

On 12 minutes Mario Melchiot rose to head in a corner taken by Charles N`Zogbia for his first goal as a Wigan Athletic player, Melchiot equalised a 5th minute strike from Hannover forward Jan Rosenthal who fired home through a crowded box.

The game was very definitely a friendly and had few highlights but Latics boss Roberto Martinez was pleased with the performance of his team and he told the clubs official website that 'things are beginning to take shape`.

With just one recognised striker in Hugo Rodallega playing just half a game it`s no wonder that the Latics didn`t convert any more chances, Martinez speaking on Wigan Athletic TV said: 'The end product is still missing'

'It's early days, the players are still getting used to a change in approach.

'But we're talking about real quality players here, it will come. We are not asking them to do anything they are not capable of, just to think a little differently. I am pleased with the fact that things are beginning to take shape, and that I see signs of progress.'
