Wigan Athletic midfielder Lee Evans says they will go into this Saturday’s trip to Norwich City ‘full of confidence.’

Latics took their points tally to 16 from their opening nine games of the Championship campaign with Friday’s 1-0 win over Bristol City, and they now sit fifth in the table.

Norwich, meanwhile, are up to 11th after they recorded their third straight win last weekend with a 1-0 success over QPR, and Evans acknowledges Saturday’s trip to Carrow Road will be a testing one.

“It’s going to be a tough game,” said the Welshman.

“They’re a massive club with a good squad, a good manager.

“I think they’ve picked-up recently as well and started winning a few games so it’s going to be a tough game.”

But Latics are on a roll themselves, having come out of a spell of three games in seven days with six points.

And Evans, a summer signing from Sheffield United, says Latics will be making the trip this weekend with their tails up.

He said: “At the moment we’re doing well so we’re going to go into it full of confidence.”
