Wigan Athletic defender Emmerson Boyce is excited about their new-look strike-force.

Both Franco di Santo and Arouna Kone have each scored three goals from the opening seven games.

“Goalscorers are worth their weight in gold, and they have really proved their worth this season,” Boyce told the Wigan Observer.

“That’s two games now out of seven where they have both scored, and that obviously shows what a good understanding they have going.

“They both have great potential and they both know where the goal is. They’re taking their chances at the moment and that can only bode well for the team.

“It’s always a good sign when both of your strikers score. That’s what the manager wanted and they’ve done that for him.

“It’s up to the rest of us now to chip in and help out where we can, and it can still be a good season for us.”
