Latics manager Gary Caldwell issues rallying call to supporters, coaches and players to make ‘club motto’ come real.

  • ‘Let’s All Believe’ – Gary Caldwell.
  • ‘We have to believe we can still do it.’ Gary Caldwell.
  • ‘Millwall is one of the toughest places to go – but we’ll be positive’ Gary Caldwell.
New Latics manager Gary Caldwell says the dream of survival is still on, but "all of us, players, coaches and supporters, need to keep believing. That’s what we do at this club, we believe, that’s become the club motto over the last few years, hasn’t it?"

Latics take on Millwall at the Den tomorrow night, Tuesday, looking for three crucial points in the club’s quest for Sky Bet Championship survival, and Caldwell says it is going to be a huge challenge.

"We have to stay focused completely on what we do, not any other teams," he says, "and we know how tough it’s going to be. Millwall is one of the hardest places to go, their fans are passionate and the atmosphere will be electric, especially with so much riding on the game."

"But I’ve experienced similar situations before and it really is a case of being completely positive in everything you do, and believing in yourself.

"The supporters have a huge role to play. I remember in the Premier League when we were up against it at the end of the season, they came to greet us before games and it gave us a massive boost.

"This is a time for sticking together, all of us. We know it’s a massive task ahead of us, no one is saying it’s not but while there’s hope there is belief and we will approach the game with the intention of getting the three points."
