Wigan manager Roberto Martinez believes returning centre forward Mauro Boselli is set to take the Barclays Premier League by storm in the absence of Victor Moses.

The 27-year-old Argentine returned to the Latics from loan spells at Genoa and Estudiantes and was handed his first start on Tuesday in the Capital One Cup win over Nottingham Forest.

Boselli scored the opening goal, and with Franco Di Santo and new signing Arouna Kone, who both netted in last weekend's win over Southampton, Martinez is confident his new-look strike force will prosper with Moses' move to Chelsea now complete. Martinez said: "We are very, very exited about Mauro."
