Wigan boss Martinez fears facing in-form Stoke striker Crouch

Wigan Athletic boss Roberto Martinez fears facing Stoke City striker Peter Crouch after his stunning goal against Manchester City.

Martinez is praying the towering striker does not blow a huge hole in Wigan's battle to stay up.

He said: "The execution of his goal against City was so special. It showed he's in a great moment of form and confidence.

"It was a goal of real ­arrogance, to have a shot from there. He's a threat. We have to be aware of that."
