Hutchings backs Bruce appointment at Wigan

Former Wigan boss Chris Hutchings believes Steve Bruce is the right man to save the Latics from Premier League relegation.

It will be Bruce's second spell at Wigan following a brief period at the end of the 2000/01 season and Hutchings acknowledges his successor does face a difficult task.

"It is difficult, a couple of years back he was at the club for six to eight games," Hutchings told the Radio Five Live.

"So people at the club already know him, he's got a good track record of getting people up and this year is going to be a big test for him.

"But you have to kind of hang in there and he has got a good squad of players.

"When he looks at the Wigan squad and the Birmingham squad he'll maybe think the Wigan squad is slightly stronger."
