GARY Caldwell says everyone at Wigan Athletic is firmly behind the Warriors as they go in search of Grand Final glory.

Latics face a big game of their own in Greater Manchester when they travel to Bury for a 3pm kick-off.

And Caldwell is keeping his fingers crossed for Wigan double to toast on Saturday night.

“It would be great if they could bring the trophy back to Wigan,” he told the Evening Post.

“I was with a charity event last weekend with a few of the guys, and we were talking about their preparation for Saturday.

“It’s fantastic they get to so many Grand Finals, and bring so much success to the town.

“We’ll be thinking of them on Saturday evening and fingers crossed they can pick up another victory.

“It’s great for the town and very inspiring for us, the football club, to see the rugby league team doing well.

“Hopefully it can be a big year for both the rugby and football.”

Caldwell admits he is keen to look into the possibility of both clubs working closer together in areas such as conditioning and preparation.

“It’s something I’ve spoken about wanting to do more of,” he added.

“We don’t actually do as much of that as you’d think.

“We meet up at the odd event, I see the management and Sean (O’Loughlin), and it’s definitely something we should do more of.”
