Martinez: Latics emotionally ready

first_img They are four points adrift of Sunderland, who occupy the final position of safety, and with a goal difference 11 worse than the Black Cats anything other than a win at Arsenal will effectively mean they are relegated. If that was not enough, the Gunners also need the win to climb back into the top four and maintain their unbroken run in the Champions League. However, Wigan’s FA Cup triumph means the players go into the game on an emotional high even if they are physically fatigued and Martinez hopes their Wembley experience will carry them through. Martinez added: “What came out on Saturday was all their work over 10 months; it doesn’t click into place because it has to – it clicks into place because these players have been performing in this manner for many months. “We need to take all the positive feelings we have from Saturday into a massive game. “Physically sometimes you can be drained but emotionally everyone is ready. We will have to assess it very carefully and get everyone fully fit because to play against a talented Arsenal side you need to be full of energy. “It is a game that we have to win but Arsenal have to win so it will be a great advert for the league – two teams with similar ideologies who have to win on the day and I can’t think of a better game to watch.” Wigan manager Roberto Martinez accepts his players may be physically drained but has promised they are emotionally ready for the crucial Barclays Premier League clash at Arsenal. Martinez guided the Latics to their first major trophy on Saturday, upsetting Manchester City 1-0 in the FA Cup final. If their Wembley mission was a tough ask, Wigan’s task of surviving in the Premier League was made even more difficult by the results of their rivals on Sunday. “As a player it is not just winning the FA Cup, which is a unique moment in your career, but it is the manner in which we competed against such a talented team and that gives you great confidence,” the Spaniard said. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more


first_imgGARDAI are today hunting a so-called ‘joyriding’ gang behind a spate of car thefts in the Rathmullan area.Three cars were stolen at the weekend – and two of them were burned out.Sources say gardai are still searching for a third vehicle. They were all stolen between the Rathmullan and Glenvar areas late on Friday night. The incident was one of numerous car crime events being investigated over the weekend and comes after Garda Traffic Corps Sergeant Iggy Larkin told RTE at the weekend that officers had seized an incredible 500 cars in the Letterkenny area alone this year.Many of these had been crushed, said Sgt Larkin.There were also serious incidents of boy racers joyriding in the town on Friday and Saturday night and residents in Ballyarr reported late night races on the route of the Donegal rally at 3am on Sunday.One senior Garda source told donegaldaily.com: “It’s no secret we have problems with boy racers but these spate of incidents in and around Rathmullan marks an escalation in the level of crime involved.” Sgt Larkin is a huge advocate of education in a bid to reduce car crime throughout County Donegal.He was backed up in that view on the Charlie Bird RTE1 radio programme by rally driver Toni Kelly.GARDAI HUNT JOYRIDERS BEHIND SPATE OF THEFTS was last modified: September 19th, 2011 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:car theftsletterkennyRathmullanlast_img read more
