Martinez defiant about survival bid

GiveMeSport

Wigan boss Roberto Martinez feels few people outside the town believe the Latics can stay up this season - but remains confident they will be proved wrong.

The Latics are bottom of the Barclays Premier League, four points adrift of safety, and widely tipped to go down, but the Spaniard - who guided the club to survival on the final day of last term - sees things differently.

He told the Wigan Observer: "I don't think the situation at the moment is any different from the ones we've faced in the past."
