Wigan boss Roberto Martinez insists his side are not taking their Barclays Premier League future for granted.

After clawing their way out of the bottom three last week, the Latics are back in trouble following a 3-2 home defeat by Sunderland. Martinez blamed the setback on the knee injury Ivan Ramis suffered at Fulham last week, which led to a defensive frailty, with Steven Fletcher moving onto 10 goals for the season with an impressive first-half double.

But Martinez is adamant that, after eight years in the top flight, no-one at Wigan is resting on their laurels, and he said: "We never take anything for granted. If we had done that we would never have had eight seasons at this level."
