Wigan defender Emmerson Boyce is hopeful the club can avoid of a repeat of last season, when their survival fight went down to the final match.

However, the 32-year-old insists they are more than ready for the eventuality of their fate hanging on the outcome of the game at home to Wolves on May 13.

Only victory at Stoke on a dramatic final day last May kept the Latics up, and with 13 games remaining this season Boyce, buoyed by a vital win at fellow strugglers Bolton at the weekend, is looking to better that, and said: "The manager asked us for a big performance because it was a must-win game and the pressure was on."
