Gary Caldwell feels Wigan have it in them to pull off a "big win" over Manchester United at the DW Stadium on Saturday that will boost their bid for Barclays Premier League survival.
The Latics are currently 18th in the table, a point adrift of safety, and have 11 games left to preserve their top-flight status.
The visit of league leaders United looks a daunting prospect, but the likes of Arsenal and Liverpool have been held to draws this season at Wigan and skipper Caldwell believes the team can go one better this weekend.
"The manager will show us what United are good at, give us options on how to deal with those things and what we're going to do as a team," Caldwell told the club`s official website.
"I think we've shown enough this season that anyone coming here won't fancy it and hopefully we can produce a good display, get the fans behind us and get a big win.
"We've got talent all over the park to deal with them but they are a real threat when they're on form."
