Martinez blames Wigan injuries on relegation battle

Wigan Athletic boss Roberto Martinez feels they've suffered this season due to injuries.

Wigan must beat Arsenal tonight to stand any chance of beating the drop.

"We have missed Antolin Alcaraz most of the season, Ivan Ramis has a cruciate (knee) injury, Gary Caldwell has a hip problem, (goalkeeper) Ali Al Habsi has a problem in his shoulder, we lost Jean Beausejour and Maynor Figueroa - the list is endless.

"But we never moan about it, the players never use that as an excuse. We've just got on with it and we've been able to win a major trophy.

"The difference of 10 to 12 points is something we should have earned with our performances and we should be talking about a team in the top nine."
