Tom Cleverley - We Can Be A Banana Skin

Wigan Athletic midfield man Tom Cleverley, currently on loan to the Latics from Manchester United, reckons Fergusons men could face a potential banana skin when the two sides meet tomorrow at the DW Stadium.

Speaking to Latics Player the England under 21 international says it`s an exciting season and he has interest at both ends of the table, but he is hugely frustrated by the fact that he is ineligible to play in the game against his parent club following recovery from his hamstring injury that has seen him sidelined for the best part of 6 weeks.

Cleverley reckons that the Latics current form will be enough to cause problems and take points off United, Spurs and Chelsea, so long as consistency can be found, he also reckons that there is more than enough in the squad to get the club out of the bottom three.

Speaking to Latics Player Cleverley said: "United have been a bit sticky away from home and we`ve been quite good at home so it could be a banana skin.

"I keep my eye on both ends of the table and with my connections I have interests at both ends"

"If we can keep that level of consistency that we showed at Liverpool the other week then I am sure that we can keep picking up points against Tottenham, Chelsea and United, we just need some consistency now until the end of the season."

"I`m fully recovered from my injury now and I see it if I play in the final ten games of the season then it`ll have been a successful season for me.

"I`ve been a bit disappointed with stop starting, internationals, injuries, ineligible it`s all been a bit frustrating for me, but I am looking to play in these last ten games and help Wigan"

"The confidence in the squad is high, it has been all season, there is a good set of characters who believe in their ability.

"We have never considered relegation and we believe that we can get out of it."

Not a pity for us worbo i'm really looking forward to getting him back, hopefully he can fill that much needed AM role. Hope he recovers and helps you stay in the Premier League just after our game though.
