Wigan manager Roberto Martinez says Saturday’s opponents Tottenham will not be distracted by their upcoming Champions League quarter final.

Tottenham will play a massive game against Spanish giants Real Madrid on Tuesday but Martinez knows the north Londoners will be fully focussed on the Premier League this weekend.

Martinez said: “Regardless of their Champions League involvement next week this will be a very difficult game.”

“Sometimes having fixtures like that on the horizon can work as an advantage and teams may look at the games beforehand as the ideal chance to gear themselves up and tune their performance.”

“But from now until the end of the season it is all about us, our performances on the pitch and being to take every game as a unique opportunity to collect points.”

“We’re facing one of the best teams in Europe because Tottenham have been the surprise package in this season’s Champions League.”

Wigan sit last on the Premier League table but just five points separate them and Fulham in 12th place.

Martinez knows now is the time to turn good performances into points and ensure top flight survival.

He said: “The differences between all the clubs at the bottom of the table are so small and we’re prepared for the fight going right down to the final game of the season.”

“From our point-of-view we’ve been very consistent over the last few weeks, played to a high standard and now is the time to collect the points we’ve been missing.

Martinez has a fully-fit squad to choose from.
