Fulham midfielder Jimmy Bullard is backing Michael Brown to be a big hit at former club Wigan Athletic.

Bullard told fulhamfc.com: "I spoke to Browny yesterday and wished him all the best. I was a bit gutted as he was my roomy as well you know. He broke me into the Club and made it easier for me - he's a top man Browny.

"I'm sure he'll be a great buy for Wigan and hopefully I won't be playing against him because you know what he tackles like!"
