Wigan Athletic - Seventh Heaven For Martinez


Wigan Athletic boss Roberto Martinez feels that the number of changes to the squad has reflected in the Latics slow start to the season with just three points from a possible 12, but he does believe that the team is heading in the right direction and feels that the next 6 months will be crucial, Martinez says: 'Our start does possibly reflect the amount of changes we have had to make within the club'

'Players need time to gel but with hard work and a winning mentality it will come. If we are to go onto the next level we have to be successful in the next six months.

'We have to work towards eventually becoming a top seven club - that is my aim.

'I'm pleased with the squad. It may be a bit thin but we are constantly looking at finding ways to fulfil its potential, which I feel is huge."


A bit thin up front I would say Roberto though the boss himself likes to think that goals will come from other areas apart from just the strikers, he continued: 'We will always be a team who creates chances. I know we have goals in the side - we have goals in us from both wide areas and from set-pieces and all the strikers are working very hard.

'However, we do need to find a way to score goals in other ways. We were unlucky to lose late on at Everton last weekend as we deserved something from the game and could have taken all three points. But when that happens you want to get back out there again as soon as possible."


With Latics failure to bring in the much vaunted forward in the transfer window Martinez bdoesnt see that as a problem, quite the contrary he says it will give the current crop some stability and he expects them to perform well and get the points to enable the Latics to climb the table, he concluded: 'Now the transfer window has closed, the next 18 games will provide the players here with stability and they know what is expected of them.

'We have some very important games coming up and we know the areas we need to work on.''
