Moses eyes top 10 finish

BY foxsports • October 15, 2011

Latics are currently third from bottom in the table and have picked up just five points from seven matches. On Saturday Roberto Martinez's side will host bottom-placed Bolton Wanderers, and Moses believes that they have what it takes to turn around their season starting with their game at the DW Stadium. "You cannot say yet who is going to be relegated after seven games," the 20-year-old told The Sun. "We believe there's enough quality in our squad to finish in the top 10 - that's what we're aiming for." "It's a massive match," he continued. "After having the international break, we're itching to get out there. "We're looking forward to playing in a derby with all the pressure that brings - the adrenalin is pumping through us. "I thrive on pressure and, don't worry, we have belief in our abilities. The important thing is to win and move up the table. "To do that we need to be more clinical in front of goal, myself included, and I'm sure the goals will come." The Nigeria-born attacker also retains his faith in Martinez to bring positive results to Wigan as the season progresses, describing him as "world class". "The gaffer is a world class coach," enthused Moses. "He kept us up last season and stayed when he had the chance to go to Aston Villa. "He's clearly a good manager and loyal too. He's given me regular games this season and now said he wants to reward me with a new deal. "That's good of him to say. It's great he's seen the hard work I've put in. "Roberto is popular in the dressing room and enjoyable to work with. He's always making jokes and tells you what to do on the pitch. "If you have a bad game, he picks you back up. He tells you to forget it and just improve for the next match. He says 'Go training and work on what you did wrong'."
