Roger Espinoza says Latics are only thinking of the next game.

Speaking after yesterday’s dramatic 3-2 victory over West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns, Honduras international Roger Espinoza said that he and the team are more focussed now than ever before.

He explained:

“We’re happy with the win but at the same time we can’t enjoy it too much because on Tuesday we’re back in action again.

“Right now we’re on a mission because we have to win a few games to stay up, if not every game.

“The vision to stay in this league has never gone away and it’s going to be there until the end.”

Winning the game against West Brom brought about a special feeling for the midfielder and something he thinks the team will thrive from.

“The fans were there for us against West Brom and they’ve always been there for us, since I’ve arrived I’ve really felt that.

“It feels good when you win a game and you’ve made a lot of people feel happy, it’s like a family.

“We’ve got four big games left this season and the fans are going to play a big part.”

Yesterday was the second consecutive game that Espinoza has been brought on as a late substitute as Latics looked to hold onto a result.

The midfielder said he’ll continue to be ready for the team.

“I’m very positive about my career here and I’m always ready whenever I’m needed.

“I was warming up and wasn’t sure whether I’d be needed but then Jean (Beausejour) got injured and I had to be ready.

“That’s the way we’ve all got to be because of the situation we’re in at the moment with survival and injuries.”
