'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Roberto Martinez Pleased With Breather


Wigan Athletic boss Roberto Martinez is grateful of a bit of extra preparation time ahead of the big clash with Portsmouth that`s been put back from today (Saturday) to Wednesday, due to Pompey`s appearance in the FA Cup semi final on Sunday.

Martinez says that it`s a welcome breather and will give the players a little extra time to fully recover from their bumps and bruises as they focus in on one of the biggest games of the season.

Speaking to the press Martinez said: 'At this stage of the season, when you get a bit of a breather, it's always positive'

'We need to make sure we use it well so the players can recharge their batteries and refresh physically and mentally to get ready for the game on Wednesday.

'As it is, we have a couple of injuries, and they need that extra time to recover.

'For the rest of the boys, they need to make sure that they get rid of any stiffness and get ready for Portsmouth.'


With Latics entering the seasons home straight and the finishing post definitely in sight with just five games remaining before the seasons end Martinez says the club need to be ready for the challenge.

The young boss also recognises the part to play for the Latics supporters especially with three of those five games being at the DW Stadium, Martinez is hoping that the fans will really get behind the team and create a special atmosphere.

Martinez gives a rallying call to the supporters to get behind the team and says together we will get the rewards, he concluded: 'We`re getting ready for the next five games, which is a challenge we need to be really excited for'

'All of the home games we have left - Portsmouth, Arsenal and Hull - are really, really important.

'We need to recreate the atmosphere we had at the Liverpool game and make sure we embrace the challenge.

'At home, we need to give our best and be proud of representing the club. For the fans, I know it's hard to find the necessary patience.

'But I would tell the fans to make sure we push together in the last little bit of the campaign, and I know we'll get the rewards.'
