Roberto Martinez is convinced Wigan will beat the drop after they put in a fine display despite a 1-0 defeat at Manchester City.
A goal from Carlos Tevez seven minutes from time earned City all three points to leave Wigan in the relegation zone but Martinez says there are plenty of positives to take from the game.
Wigan created enough chances to win the game with Shaun Maloney, Arouna Kone and Franco di Santo all going close and Martinez admits they paid the price for not putting them away.
However the Spaniard says if they continue to play the way they did at the Etihad Stadium, they will get out of trouble.
"We didn't take the chances, it is as simple as that," Martinez revealed. "I thought we were magnificent from start to finish. We created four very good chances. I don't think many teams come to the Etihad and create four very good chances in open play.
"Those chances need to finish in the back of the net and that's why we lost the game. If we do that in every game, we will get a lot of points. I couldn't be prouder of the performance.
"We limited them to two shots on target, I don't think many teams have done that. My players deserve huge credit. The performance is exactly what we need."
