It’s a massive week for bottom three side Wigan Athletic, with the league visit of Swansea followed by an FA Cup final date with Manchester City.
Victory at Wembley would earn the Latics the first major trophy in their history but manager Roberto Martinez believes Premier League survival would be a similar achievement.
“If we stay up, it would be like winning the title,” said the Spaniard, who is hoping that last Saturday’s heroics over West Brom will have given his side some winning momentum.
“We have worked really hard for two months to get in the position where, with two weeks of the season left, we are still involved in two competitions,” he added.
Martinez must decide how to deploy his squad with such vital games coming up, but believes the home support at the DW Stadium can help his players fight any possible fatigue.
He has called on the fans to “get ready to recharge the batteries ahead of Tuesday night against Swansea, because we really need them with us once more for another big game”.
Swansea have already stashed away a piece of silverware from this season, but have gone off the boil since their League Cup win in March, failing to win any of their last seven matches.
But manager Michael Laudrup remains upbeat about his side: “I have to be pleased. One more win should now see us finish in the top half and that would be a fantastic achievement.”
Wigan have never beaten Swansea in the Premier League (D1 L2).
The Latics last beat Swansea in the league in January 2001, a 2-0 second-tier victory at home.
But they did beat Swansea in the League Cup in October 2010, another 2-0 home victory.
The Latics have only won four Premier League matches at home this season.
Wigan have conceded the opening goal 23 times in this season’s Premier League, the most by any team in the top flight in 2012-13.
Arouna Kone has scored 11 league goals for Wigan this season, just one behind Henri Camara’s 12 goals in 2005-06, which is the Latics’ record haul in the Premier League.
Callum McManaman has scored in Wigan’s last two league matches.
Swansea have won four Premier League matches on the road this season.
The Swans have won only one of their eight league games since winning the Capital One Cup (W1, D3, L4).
They have lost their last six Premier League matches against clubs in the top half of the table. (BBC)
