Even though Wigan Athletic are currently struggling in their bid to stay in the Sky Bet Championship, manager Malky Mackay has vowed that his team will fight to the end.
The Latics are currently five points away from safety and they have seven games left this season to try and rescue themselves.
With games against four of the top eight remaining, things couldn’t be any more difficult for the side that sit third from bottom.
However, in a recent interview with BBC Radio Manchester, Mackay revealed that his team will not stop fighting until the last whistle on the final game of the season on May 2nd.
The former Watford boss admitted that his players are continuing in their fight to stay in what has been whirlwind league this year with two of the top six being unexpected candidates, having only previously come up from League One the season before.
“I’ve got a group that are absolutely going at it and will until the last minute, to the last day, down at Brentford,” Mackay said.
“That’s how we’ll play until the end of the season – I can guarantee that to the fans.” Mackay continued.
Wigan Athletic have been in the relegation places since the 10th of November and Mackay has only won six of his 22 games in charge which is a pretty poor return.
However, Mackay has continued to back his player’s cases in their struggle to stay in the league.
“We will re-focus and get ready for these last seven games – we’ll be going at it strong right until the last day,” Mackay said.
