Caldwell eyes historic win

Roberto Martinez’s side take on United at Old Trafford on Boxing

Day with history pointing to another three points for the reigning

league champions. But Caldwell claims draws against Chelsea and

Liverpool have inspired Wigan to believe they can finally upset the

odds. He said: “To do something this club has never done before and

get a result from Old Trafford would be very special. “We’re going

there ready to give everything we’ve got, full of confidence and

with a belief that we can do something. “Of course, they’re a top

team, have home advantage and are right in the thick of a title

challenge, so it’ll be very difficult but an excellent opportunity

to continue the strong run we’re on. “To lead the out into the best

stadium in the league will be a special moment; as a kid growing up

I remember watching the likes of Eric Cantona and Ryan Giggs

playing there and taking opponents by storm. “So it’ll be a big day

for everyone concerned and we all believe we can get something from

the game and make it a special day for the fans.” Wigan are on a

roll of only one defeat in their last six matches and although they

are still third-from-bottom Martinez says he is not even

entertaining the possibility of relegation. Martinez said: “It’s a

big mistake to start talking about relegation in December. “We are

ready to face adversity and be as good as we can. “I always say

that for me there is no bottom three. The way the competition has

been going it’s a bottom 13. “There are two clear groups – the top

seven are reaching a very strong level and are competing for the

Champions League and the title. “The other group you have 13 teams

fighting to see who says in the league and who will go down.”
