Moses keen to excel for Latics

At 19, his idea of fun is to race down the wing, terrify his
opponent and either grab a goal or set up a chance. Moses did just
that on when he scored the winner in Saturday’s 1-0 Premier League
victory against West Brom at the DW Stadium. It was the first
league goal of the season for the England Under-21 international,
who arrived at the end of the January transfer window in a
£2.5million move from Crystal Palace. Moses lit up up the game
with his surging runs after coming on in the second half and must
be in with a chance of starting against Manchester United on
Saturday at Old Trafford. You get the impression Moses would not be
fazed as he also did well in the draw with Liverpool in midweek. He
said: “It is up to the manager (Roberto Martinez). I am just keen
to play football and enjoy myself. That is the best thing. “I want
to get at the full-back as soon as I get the ball, threaten him and
make him nervous. It is important to create chances for the team
and go forward all the time. “There are a lot of games to come and
I am just keen to keep learning and improving.” Moses’ vital goal
came in the 70th minute when he steered the ball beyond goalkeeper
Scott Carson and into the corner of the net after being set up by
Charles N’Zogbia. Wigan’s first win in six league games took them
out of the bottom three and Martinez praised Moses for his
contribution. Martinez said: “We wanted to stretch the game and
that is why I sent him on. He has the ability and is in a great
moment. “He came on against Liverpool and did well on Wednesday. I
am not just using him as an impact player. “He had a couple of
injuries and has had to bide his time. He is still adapting to the
Premier League. “Victor is a very mature player and is ready to
help the team. He is a raw talent. ”
