Emile Heskey was delighted for two-goal Ryan Taylor after Wigan's victory over Birmingham City.
The striker said: "We got the lead and then we were able to push on. This is a very important victory. We never allowed Birmingham to play their passing game.
"I am made up for Ryan because he's a smashing player and he showed his character after missing a penalty last week.
"He finished the first one brilliantly and then got in ahead of me for the second. I would have liked it but he poked the ball home. We could have had more goals but we can't complain after achieving what we set out to do. We can now look forward to going to Chelsea next week."
