Wigan Athletic goalkeeper Ali Al-Habsi has called for everyone associated with the Latics to rally together and help pull the club out of the relegation zone.

Oman`s number one says that with two home games from the final four it gives the club an excellent chance of picking up the points needed to climb up the table, starting with Everton on Saturday, three points would be a fantastic shot in the arm as the Latics fight for survival.

Obviously last weekends defeat at Sunderland was a bit of a setback, but Ali says that the characters in the Latics dressing room will pick the players up ready for the challenge, now he wants everyone to get behind teh team to make 100% certain that survival is achieved.

Speaking to the clubs official website Al-Habsi said: ‘There are some big characters in the dressing room who’ll pick the team up; players who have been in this situation before and know what is needed to pull through.

‘There is still a great chance for us to survive in the Premier League and if we can pick up six points from our remaining two home games it will go a long way to achieving that.

‘The players, staff and fans will all be up for the challenge and ready to get behind the team to make it happen.’
