Boyce hails `perfect' Rodallega

Emmerson Boyce has described his Wigan colleague Hugo Rodallega as a "perfect" team-mate. Rodallega was again Wigan's hero, scoring twice in a 3-1 victory at Burnley to end the Clarets' 100% record at Turf Moor since their arrival on the Barclays Premier League stage. Although the Colombian striker has been plying his trade in the top flight since January, his English is still not good enough for the 24-year-old to face the media. So it was left to defender Boyce, who sealed the win with Wigan's third, the second of his Latics career and first in 11 months, to assess Rodallega. "As a team player he is perfect," remarked Boyce. "He is a quiet lad, but he proves how talented he is on the pitch and he is full of confidence in himself in terms of his ability. "He works for the team, and when he needs to he pulls out important goals for us, proving just how vital he is for this club. He is scoring a lot of winners, chipping in with goals when we need them, and that's what you need from a striker."
