FRASER Fyvie has set himself a target of breaking into the Wigan Athletic first team by the end of the campaign.
The young Scot, a summer signing from Aberdeen, has had to bide his time so far at his new club.
Fyvie’s only appearances have been as a late substitute in the Capital One Cup victories at Nottingham Forest and West Ham.
But the midfielder – who was rated as the best young player in Scotland during his days at Pittodrie – is determined to make his mark before the end of the season.
“I’m not in the limelight so much now I’m at Wigan so I’m getting the chance to improve my skills,” he admitted.
“I’m looking to get into the first team this season.
“Obviously I’ve played first-team football so I know what it’s like.
“I’ve played a few reserve games and the manager is there every week.
“He encourages us and tells us to keep going.
“He signed me so he has obviously got a bit of faith in me. He’s probably the best manager I could be under at this stage of my career.
“All the boys at Wigan love him and couldn’t speak more highly of him.”
