Wigan chairman Whelan: We won't crumble against Man Utd

Wigan Athletic chairman Dave Whelan has dismissed claims they'll lie down against Manchester United on Sunday.

"All this rubbish in the press about ‘we will be rolling over for Manchester United' is complete and absolute rubbish," Whelan told an audience at the Latics' annual awards dinner.

"You ask the boys, they'll be fighting their socks off, I'll tell you. If we can beat Man U, we are going to beat them. We're going to get stuck in and give it our best shot.

"Whatever they say in Chelsea, we're Wigan, and we will try and beat any team that comes to the JJB Stadium."
