Roberto Martinez hailed Saturday's 2-1 victory over West Ham as the start of Wigan's season as they claimed a first home win of the campaign to end a poor run.
The Latics had gone six games without a Barclays Premier League victory, losing four times, but goals from Ivan Ramis and James McArthur early in each half proved enough.
Latics manager Martinez said: "Before the game we knew it was a must-win game, and that's always difficult to cope with. It brings extra expectations and all of a sudden you start wanting to win and you don't really know how to win."
