Wigan boss Roberto Martinez hopes Jordi Gomez has answered his critics among the Latics fans after his hat-trick earned a much-needed three points from a 3-2 victory over Reading.

The Spaniard was making only his third start of the season in the Barclays Premier League and was jeered early in the game for a few poor touches, but he responded with goals in the 58th and 68th minutes after Sean Morrison had given Reading the lead. The Royals looked to have snatched a point after 80 minutes through an Ali Al Habsi own goal before Gomez struck his third.

The Latics boss said. "Because he missed the first two or three passes, all of a sudden the crowd let him know. I've seen it so many times and it's very difficult to compose yourself, and it would have been all too easy for him to hide and look away from the challenge. But that's not Jordi at all. Nobody deserved a hat-trick more today than him."
