Wigan Athletic manager Roberto Martinez insists that his team's win against Manchester United on Wednesday night will count for little if they are relegated.

Wigan Athletic manager Roberto Martinez has claimed that his side's midweek win against Manchester United will count for little if they are relegated.

Shaun Maloney's goal earned the Latics their first ever victory over the Premier League champions on Wednesday night.

However, Martinez hopes that his players can now build on their historic triumph.

"I don't think we have time to look back too much, because with the position in the table we are in, we have to achieve our aim," he said. "If we don't, the performance against Manchester United will count for very little.

"We need points, we need to work extremely hard in the next five games and we cannot lose concentration."

Wigan, who are two points above the relegation zone, travel to Arsenal in the league on Monday night.
