Wigan Athletic defender Emmerson Boyce is confident they can handle a busy end to the season.

Wigan's impressive recent run now stands at one defeat in eight matches, ahead of back-to-back away games at Manchester City and West Ham.

But Boyce says the squad is ready for the challenge of playing every three or four days between now and the end of the campaign.

"In the last few games we've really showed the togetherness in the squad, the team spirit and the fighting qualities we have," he recognised.

"We've obviously got to be careful not to get carried away, and concentrate on the league games we have left."
