Wigan attacker Shaun Maloney is confident his side can stun Manchester City in Saturday’s FA Cup final.

Roberto Martinez’s side are given little chance of causing an upset at Wembley, but they will enter the final in good form.

Wigan won 3-2 at West Brom on Saturday to keep their hopes of Premier League survival alive and Maloney, who set up two of the goals, feels his side have the ability to beat anyone on their day.

“Winning trophies at a club like this probably isn’t the first thing on your mind at the start of the season, but as each round comes along you get more excited,” he said.

“Once it gets within touching distance then you start to believe. We are a good team and on any given day I think we can beat any team. We are hoping that happens in the cup final.

“Our manager always preaches that you should try and enjoy your matches and that’s what we try to do. We know on our day we can beat any team. We’ve proved it in the Premier League.

“We’ve had tough games against City in the past and we know how many great players they have. But if we play at our best and pass the ball as we can, we can give them real problems.

“We beat Man United last season to stay up and that shows what we can do.”

Wigan – who won seven of their last nine matches last term to avoid relegation – are two points adrift of safety with three league matches to play this season.

They face Swansea City in a crucial home fixture on Tuesday.
