Wigan defender Boyce convinced of Man City upset

Wigan Athletic defender Emmerson Boyce is convinced they can upset Manchester City.

Boyce believes they have become something of a bogey team, winning twice and drawing once in six Prem visits to City.

The experienced defender knows they face a major battle to keep David Silva, Edin Dzeko and Carlos Tevez quiet.

But he said: "You look at their striking options and you know it's going to be a busy afternoon. But in the last few years, we've done well against Manchester City. And we're on a good unbeaten run.

"Every team has a side they don't like playing against or always find it tricky against and maybe that's us with City.

"We'll have a gameplan, perhaps we can frustrate them and nick a goal.

"Hopefully they'll play into our hands, leave gaps at the back and our strikers are in form."
