Wigan Athletic captain Gary Caldwell is convinced they can pull off an upset against Manchester United.

Caldwell claims draws against Chelsea and Liverpool have inspired Wigan to believe they can finally upset the odds.

He said: "To do something this club has never done before and get a result from Old Trafford would be very special.

"We're going there ready to give everything we've got, full of confidence and with a belief that we can do something.

"Of course, they're a top team, have home advantage and are right in the thick of a title challenge, so it'll be very difficult but an excellent opportunity to continue the strong run we're on.

"To lead the out into the best stadium in the league will be a special moment; as a kid growing up I remember watching the likes of Eric Cantona and Ryan Giggs playing there and taking opponents by storm.

"So it'll be a big day for everyone concerned and we all believe we can get something from the game and make it a special day for the fans."
