Wigan boss Roberto Martinez claims his team must be a "nightmare for pundits" after completing another remarkable escape from relegation.

Widely written off two months ago as they languished bottom with 20 points from 27 games, Wigan have produced a dramatic escape by doubling their tally to stay up with a match to spare.

Monday night's 1-0 victory at Blackburn completed their turnaround, and Martinez said: "I always had the belief because I know the players and we did it last season. We have a young group with real energy, the youth and bravery allowed us to finish really strongly, but more than anything it is the characters in the club."
