Caldwell keen to avoid battle again

Wigan captain Gary Caldwell is determined to ensure the club's fans do not go through the torment of any more relegation battles.

Latics secured Premier League status for an eighth successive season with victory at Blackburn on Monday.

The win completed another remarkable escape from the drop a year after they beat Stoke on the final day to stay up.

Roberto Martinez's men were bottom with just 20 points after 27 games but have doubled that tally in their last 10 outings to survive with a match to spare.

Caldwell, 30, told the club's website: ''Now as a football club we have to progress and we don't want to be in this position again next year.

''From day one in pre-season we have to come back and show that hunger and that commitment to be a better football team and if we do that we will finish much further up this league.''

After spending most of the season in the relegation zone, Caldwell is also pleased to have proved wrong critics who wrote the team off long ago.

The influential defender said: ''I think we are easy to pick on because we're a small club and people find us as an easy target to say, 'Wigan will go down again' and they say it every season and every season we defy the odds.''
