Richards - Nothing Seems To Faze Wigan Athletic

Manchester City defender Micah Richards has spoken highly of the Latics in an interview he conducted with City`s official web site.

The England defender says that even though Wigan are ultimately always viewed as underdogs they come through by doing things their own way and under new boss Roberto Martinez, Richards comments that the Latics are playing some decent stuff.

Richards also tells of the friendship between City`s Shaun Wright-Phillips and Latics defender Titus Bramble saying that they `knock around` together and Titus always gets the better of his little mate when they come up against each other.

Speaking to mcfc.co.uk Richards says: "Wigan will be fired up for the game, they always are against us. Nothing seems to faze them. They are nearly always underdogs but just gone out and done their own thing and under the new manager they are playing some decent football.

"They have one big scalp this season and they will be looking for another. But we are in great shape in terms of confidence, if not injuries, and we are looking to maintain our momentum."

"Titus Bramble is one of Shaun Wright-Phillips` best mates - they are always knocking around together - and every time they come up against one another Titus always seems to give him a hard time,"

"I think Shaun will have the better of him this time....I will be telling him that anyway!"

Nice one big fella, it makes a change from some opposition players belittling us
