Bruce warns Wigan: Relegation battle not over

Wigan Athletic boss Steve Bruce has warned his players they're still in a relegation scrap, despite their recent upsurge in results.

"We're still in a relegation battle," insisted Bruce. "But the players deserve a big pat on the back because it's all right talking the talk and working on the training ground, but they have to produce.

"At the moment they are playing to their potential, and the main thing is belief because at one stage they were shot.

"I feel we've brought belief, brought the training ground to life and been bubbly.

"We've tried to turn them round, point them in the right direction and do the right things.

"We've put a bit of belief back that we can mount a challenge to stay in the Premier League, and I hope that remains for the next two or three months."
