Wigan skipper Caldwell tribute to Martinez: He kept us calm

Wigan Athletic skipper Gary Caldwell paid tribute to manager Roberto Martinez after their relegation-beating win over Blackburn Rovers.

Caldwell hailed the calm Martinez brought to the side in the latter stages of the campaign.

"(He deserves) great credit,' he added. 'When everyone else started panicking and the world tells you you're going down he stays calm and remains true to his principles.

"We showed great belief in our system and our style of play. This has to be the platform for the football club to progress and moved on."
