Steve Bruce insists he will not be distracted by events elsewhere on Saturday as his Wigan side aim to secure Barclays Premier League survival.

The Latics are at home to Reading, who are just one point above the relegation zone, while third-bottom Birmingham host Liverpool who are expected to field a weakened side ahead of their Champions League semi-final against Chelsea in midweek.

Wigan know victory at the JJB Stadium will confirm their top-flight status for at least another season and manager Bruce is determined to make Birmingham´s result immaterial saying: "If you engross yourself in that then it takes you over so the only thing I try to focus on is what I can influence."
