Bruce feeling better about Wigan prospects

Wigan Athletic boss Steve Bruce admits he's feeling better about their survival prospects.

He said: "We have given ourselves a chance in the league. After the Bolton game, I thought we were going to be marooned - we were only two points ahead of Derby at the time and we had four or five games against the top 10 teams in the country.

"To turn it around has been very, very pleasing, and all credit to the players.

"You can see there is a little bit of confidence, a little bit of belief coming back, and when you are like that, it is a little bit easier than trying to get a team out of a rut, which they were in."
