Speaking to iFollow Latics at the Wigan Athletic Training Centre, Lee Evans looks ahead to Latics' Sky Bet Championship trip to Norwich City, starting with how his team mates have been preparing for the long journey down to Carrow Road.

"The hot yoga was something different. After the tough week of three games in six days, the manager just wanted us to relax and get our legs back as much as we could and then we picked training up on Thursday to get us ready for Norwich."

On team spirit, Evans continued:

"Everyone is happy around the place and the position in the league helps. As soon I walked through the door I could tell nothing had changed from last season and everyone had carried the positivity through.

"Everyone's in it together and we've all bought into what the manager and the backroom staff want. It's a collective effort and that's why the results have been so good so far.

"There is confidence in the group, but we're well aware that every team has its ups and downs. At the moment we're doing well, but you can easily slip a few positions with a couple of bad results.

"We've had tough games so far and come out of the other side, but the challenges keep coming in this league."

On Norwich City and repaying supporters for travelling to the game, Evans added:

"Norwich are a very good side, a former Premier League team and another example of how hard games can be in the Championship.

"We go into the game full of confidence and we owe our travelling fans a good performance because we haven't given them much apart from at Stoke City.

"Sending our fans home happy is at the forefront of our minds and we're aiming to do that with three points at Carrow Road.

"At Brentford we didn't apply ourselves, so we have to make sure we play our usual game at Norwich and if we do that then we'll have a good chance of picking up a result."
