Wigan boss Martinez: Man Utd's Henriquez offers something different

Wigan Athletic boss Roberto Martinez is happy working with on-loan Manchester United striker Angelo Henriquez.

The youngster made an immediate impact as a second-half sub in the FA Cup tie with Bournemouth, rattling the bar and sparking the fightback that earned a 1-1 draw.

He is set for his Premier League debut at Fulham today.

Martinez said: "The way Angelo put himself about showed what he will bring - and it's something we didn't have in the squad.

"He is very quick and that allows him to stand on the last man and find a yard or two of space. He showed incredible know-how for someone of his age."
