Martinez keeps faith in Wigan

Roberto Martinez is convinced that his Wigan side can end the season in strong fashion.

The club currently sits in 18th position in the Premier League table but they are unbeaten in four matches, including claiming a credible point against a resurgent Liverpool at Anfield last Saturday.

Their next match is an FA Cup replay against Bolton Wanderers on Wednesday night and although the league is undoubtedly paramount, Martinez is hoping to breed a positive mentality within the team.

The Wigan supremo stressed: "The more experience they have the stronger they get mentally and it makes you capable.

"The group is in a very good moment mentally and it is very important that we understand we want to win every game we play in.

"We are going to carry on progressing and that is always a good mentality to have.

"The team is showing great maturity, the way we played at Anfield showed that, and that means it should give you a lot of [league] points."

Martinez admits he will rest some of his regulars for the match against the Trotters due to the importance of the league but he denies he is taking the cup lightly.

Mentality is the key to getting out a relegation battle and the former Swansea boss will know that a win over Bolton could keep the momentum going.
