Wigan Athletic fullback Emmerson Boyce revealed that his bombing raids down the Latics right flank on Saturday, one of which led to Tom Cleverley`s equaliser, are something that he has been working on
Having missed a large chunk of the season due to a troublesome hamstring problem, it was good to see Boycey back in action at the DW Stadium and back to his best, his run and cross for the Cleverley goal on 25 minutes showed that he is well and truly over any niggles.
A great incisive pass from Ben Watson gave the Latics number 17 a chance to stretch his legs and out run his marker with a fantastic turn of pace, before firing in a low cross from the by-line that Ben Foster could only parry into the path of Tom Cleverley.
Speaking about Saturday`s game against Birmingham Boyce said: "I managed to get forward quite a bit, and it`s something I have been working on, hopefully I can chip in with the creativity and we can keep getting guys on the end of the crosses and score the goals we need to stay up.
"Obviously Maynor popped up with the winner as well, so both us full-backs contributed in that area.
"But the most important thing is the three points and we got those as well."
"It`s great to be back - it`s the longest I`ve been out in terms of injury, we managed to get the three points and the hamstring held out, which made it a double bonus.
"We really showed the character in the side to come back from a goal behind against a very solid team.
"We also showed the creativity we have to get the result we deserved."
"We saw the other results, and if we hadn`t won it would have been a very hard task for us to get out of it, but the three points are in the bag now and we can look forward to the Tottenham game with a great deal of confidence."
