McCarthy Ready For Final Push
On the back of two impressive victories Irish international, James McCarthy has called upon his team to keep up their unbeaten run in the quest for survival.
After weeks of encouraging performances the Latics have finally found the killer touch over recent weeks. But despite a run that has seen them only beaten once in their last eight games McCarthy, and co still find themselves in the drop zone.
The 21 year old who signed a long term contract with the Latics back in August, spoke to the press after the 2-0 victory against Stoke: 'We have done really, really well and just not come up with the finishing touch. Thankfully Antolin has come up with the first and Victor the second and hopefully now we can kick on from here.'

A dominant display in the heart of the midfield alongside James McArthur set the tone for only their second home victory of the season. They didn't give the Potters midfield a moment's peace and were at the heart of everything that was good about the Latics play.
McCarthy reflected on the season to date and what needs to be done in order to beat the drop once again. "It's been about time, to be honest we have been through sticky patches, myself included. I have not scored this season which is disappointing. But the main thing is Wigan and if I can do a job and we win, I will do that all day.'
Roberto Martinez's men face a huge test in their next 3 encounters starting with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, followed by Manchester United's visit to the DW and then a Monday night trip to Arsenal.
Confidence is high amongst the squad and the belief is there, especially after their historic win at Anfield. Anything that they can pick up from these games could prove to be a real bounty for the Latics before they head into the crunch final four games which include games against Blackburn and Wolves.
