Arouna Kone reckons relegation strugglers Wigan will benefit from a full week of preparation when they face Tottenham on Saturday.

"It's a big week," Kone told the club's official website.

"(We have) to mix rest with hard work and be physically ready for the game at our own pace rather than having to play three games within a week like we've had to recently.

"It is crucial that we have a full week to prepare for the Tottenham game.

"It's a key match so being able to prepare properly will really help us and we need to be focused because Tottenham are a tough team."
