Martinez hinted Boselli â who scored on his only start this term in the Capital One Cup win at Nottingham Forest â is in line for a recall up front.
âWhat happened on Monday will obviously act as a real confidence-booster for Mauro,â Martinez told the Wigan Evening Post.
âBut more than that it shows you the kind of attitude he continues to show behind the scenes.
âIt would be all too easily for him to be disappointed, but all he is focused on is preparing himself if and when he is called upon.
âHe knows he is going to get his chance, and he is determined to work as hard as he can in the meantime.
âMauro came and asked me whether he could play in the Under-21s, which is a fantastic sign for me as a manager.â
