Wigan Athletic goalkeeper Mike Pollitt admits their next two games are crucial.
They have lost four of the last five games and face Portsmouth at the JJB Stadium on Saturday before visiting Birmingham a week later.
"So the next two games are ones we need to get points from.
"Harry Redknapp has spent a few quid and has put together a very good squad.
"I know Tottenham are near the bottom at the moment, but going to White Hart Lane won't be easy.
"We've dropped down the league too - we're only three points off the bottom - so we really need a couple of wins."
