Wigan manager Roberto Martinez insists the club's FA Cup triumph will not be a distraction as they fight for Premier League survival.
Roberto Martinez claims his team's past experience of relegation battles counts for little in their latest fight against the drop.
Wigan boss Roberto Martinez believes Callum McManaman has been unfairly criticised for his challenge on Newcastle's Massadio Haidara.
Wigan manager Roberto Martinez said: “This is a very special moment in the club’s history and we want to thank everyone from our home town for the tremendous support we have received and the belief the town and the council has shown in us.
We hope lots of people will turn out to celebrate with us, we’re really looking forward to having the chance to see the whole town decked out in the club’s colours again.”
Arsenal went one up in the 10th minute. An inspired free kick from Shaun Maloney got Wigan back in the game. But Arsenal came back with three more in quick succession - it ended 4.1
And Wigan - the team that won the FA Cup with such passion - are out of the Premier League.
Wigan manager Roberto Martinez will select from the same FA Cup-winning squad he took to Wembley when he returns to London to face Arsenal tomorrow.
The Latics boss is concerned about fatigue after a physically draining final at Wembley and could freshen up the starting line-up.
Provisional squad: Robles, Boyce, Alcaraz, Scharner, Gomez, Watson, Espinoza, McArthur, McCarthy, Maloney, Kone, McManaman, Al Habsi, Henriquez, Golobart, Caldwell, Di Santo, Fyvie
FA Cup winners Wigan have put plans for a victory celebration on hold until their Premier League fate is decided.
The Latics beat Manchester City 1-0 at Wembley to lift their first major trophy but face Arsenal tomorrow for their penultimate match of the season
It would see them relegated should they lose.
"The club can confirm plans for a civic ceremony to celebrate the historic FA Cup Final victory have to be put on hold until the situation in the league becomes clear," said a club statement.
"An announcement will be made as soon as any further news is available.
"The club would like to take this opportunity of thanking the incredible support shown by all the fans who travelled to Wembley, plus the great support of Wigan Council and the people of Wigan and we will keep everyone informed."
Wigan boss Roberto Martinez has claimed it would be a waste of time for Everton to contact him over their impending managerial vacancy as his mind is totally focused on Wigan for the final week of the season.
With David Moyes set to be announced as Sir Alex Ferguson's successor later today, Martinez is clear favourite to end up at Goodison Park.
But with an FA Cup Final looming on Saturday and Premier League survival to secure after that, Martinez has no time for distractions.
"At this moment in time it would be a waste of time," said Martinez.
"The most important thing is to be as ready as we can for Saturday and then the two other finals we have in the league after that.
"It is the peak time for us. We want our fans to be proud of us and that is what we are fighting for.
"What goes around on the outside doesn't affect us. We won't lose any focus."
