James McArthur says there will be plenty of twists and turns between now and the end of the season but expects Wigan to stay up.
Following some disappointing results at home, where Wigan have dropped points against the likes of Swansea, Everton and West Brom, Latics breathed new life into their survival hopes with the 2-1 win at Liverpool.
The victory has given everyone at the club a huge lift and even though McArthur expects plenty more surprises at the bottom before the season is out, he thinks Roberto Martinez's men can beat the drop.
"It's tough at the bottom - it was last year and it certainly is again this time," he told the Evening Post. "Teams are going to get results when they're not expected to - and probably a lot of people wouldn't have expected us to have gone to Liverpool and won.
"But we have huge belief in our play and that allows us to get results like that.
"I've always believed we can get out of trouble, and if we can keep pushing each other on there's no reason why we can't."
Next up is Stoke at the weekend and McArthur accepts that their home form has to improve if they are to stay up.
"We need to pick up our home form, but we just need that little bit of luck in front of goal," he added.
