Arsenal legend Ian Wright feels Wigan Athletic will beat the drop this season.

Wright wrote in The Sun: "Just as experience of fighting for trophies is vital, the same applies at the other end. And there are a few teams down the bottom who don’t have it.

"The likes of Sunderland, Aston Villa and Stoke aren’t used to this situation.

"I know Wigan played 10 men at QPR for a long time on Sunday but they were still a goal down deep in injury time, never gave up the cause and ended up nicking a point.

"It’s that sort of attitude which has got them out of the mire in the past, and it will help them do it again."
