Wigan Athletic boss Roberto Martinez paid tribute to his senior players after victory over Norwich City.

Martinez stuck with the same team for the third game in a row, meaning captain Gary Caldwell and number one goalkeeper Ali Al Habsi again found themselves on the bench.

Martinez said: "They are incredible characters. They're fighting to be ready whenever the team will need them and they are a real reference to everyone in the squad. That healthy competition for places is what will allow us to finish the season strong."
