Moneybags City don’t scare us - Boyce

EMMERSON Boyce believes Latics will have nothing to fear when they travel to Manchester City this weekend.

Wigan find themselves propping up the Premier League after the 4-0 loss to City’s neighbours United last week.

Latics will have their work cut out to start the great escape against the world’s wealthiest club, who are still in the title race despite a recent dip in form.

But Boyce says Latics have every chance of coming away from Eastlands with a result – and will go there full of confidence.

“You look at City’s team – they have world-class players right through from the goalkeeper to the strikers,” he told the Evening Post. “They’re still challenging for the title and they’ll be looking for a result themselves.

“It’s a tough test for the lads, but Eastlands is a place where teams can go and get a result as we’ve seen this season.

“We’ll go there with not as much fear as you have playing Manchester United, believing we can come away with something.

“City have struggled with consistency this season, and hopefully a good performance will see us picking up three points.”
