Wigan boss Roberto Martinez are genuine contenders for a top 10 Premier League place this season. The Latics have taken 11 points from as many games so far this term, but the Spaniard believes their performances have not been reflected in the points tally.
"It has been a good start to the season in terms of the way we are playing," he said. "I think we have been able to carry on with the level we showed last season.
"But I don't think we are there yet in terms of getting the results our performances deserve, and that is something we need to work on. Sometimes it is not good just to play well - we need to get the positive results.
"The moment we do that, we are capable of finishing in the top half of the table, but at the moment, I think we need to work extremely hard on certain aspects to be able to look at that."
