James McArthur knows Wigan Athletic can get out of the dropzone this weekend.

James McArthur knows Wigan Athletic can get out of the dropzone this weekend.

Victory over Swansea City would almost certainly lift Latics out of the bottom three – where they have spent much of the season – with 11 matches to go.

“We need to win,” McArthur told the Wigan Observer.

“We know that and we’ll be doing everything we can to make sure that happens.

“A win probably takes us out of the bottom three, and that would be such a massive psychological boost to be able to do that.

“We’re still bottom but no-one at the club is panicking. We’ve been down there and got out of trouble before, and we’ll hopefully do it again.”
