When Wigan Athletic suffered the embarrassing 9-1 defeat at White Hart Lane last week Roberto Martinez could have been forgiven for thinking that this weeks game may have seen a backlash from the Latics supporters, well quite the opposite has happened.
The club today announced that the Sunderland fixture is set to be the biggest gate of the season so far with supporters showing their loyalty to both the boss and the team as Bobby`s boys try to put last weeks horror show behind them by getting one over on former boss Steve Bruce who is now in charge of Sunderland.
Martinez knows that a good atmosphere can lift the players and it is something that he is hoping for, speaking to the clubs official website Martinez said: "The game will be won on the field, but the help of our wonderful fans can make a big difference tomorrow.
'The home form has been really encouraging and we need to approach tomorrow's game exactly the way we approached the games against West Ham, Chelsea, Manchester City and Fulham.
'And we definitely need the support of the fans again to create a passionate atmosphere that will give the players a big lift.'
Lets get behind the lads, bring it on
