Wigan Athletic boss Roberto Martinez urged his side not to think that it was job done after a superb 2-1 win at Arsenal moved them five points clear of the dropzone.

The Latics stormed into a two-goal lead within eight minutes at the Emirates Stadium and held on to register a fourth win in five games, a run which has seen them move clear of the foot of the Premier League table in some style.

Wigan are now 6/1 to be relegated, with Blackburn Rovers 1/6 and Bolton Wanderers 6/5.

However, Martinez is wary of his players getting carried away by their successes over Liverpool, Manchester United and now the Gunners, saying: "We can't really enjoy it because moments like this will mean nothing if we don't get enough points to stay up."

"I always said we would click as a team at the beginning of February and we had been playing really well, but could not win games, which left us a bit frustrated with draws.

"But we have been patient and been able to be stubborn with what we wanted to do and get the results."

Next up for Wigan is a trip to Craven Cottage to take on Fulham on Saturday, with the Latics 7/2 to register another victory to maintain their momentum.
