Martinez Asks For That Special Environment

Martinez Asks For That Special Environment

Wigan Athletic manager Roberto Martinez is asking for the fans to really get behind the team in the next two home games at the DW Stadium, starting this Saturday when Everton are the visitors and then for the final home game of the season against West Ham United on Sunday 15th May.

Desperate for points to keep the club in the Premier League, the importance of good support isn`t lost on Martinez, he is quick to praise the away following at Blackpool and ask s for more of the same please this Saturday.

To help the fans get behind the team in numbers the Latics have a special ticket deal on offer, the two crucial home games can be seen for just £30 for adults (£25 for concessions) and junior tickets are just £5, that`s for both games not just one, but hurry there is a deadline of this Friday to purchase the tickets.

Martinez wants you there at the DW, he says: 'Our fans have been superb over the last few months'

'They know how to create that special environment for us.

'They were a key part of how we achieved the three points at Blackpool and I know that they will do the same again for us on Saturday.'

Special ticket price...last two remaining home game tickets for the price of one. (Not bad eh) How can anyone make excuses unless they live outside in a cardboard box, (bless the poor sould that do though) Now is the time if your a Latics fan!! Comon folks, think not of reasons why you cannot, go, and think of "EVERY REASON" why you can and should go to these games. Please buy those tickets and support the Latics if you want to make a difference and help keep this club in the Premiership.
