Jason Scotland expects to keep his place in Wigan Atlethic's starting XI following their historic weekend victory over Chelsea.

The Trinidad & Tobago international was given his first Premier League start and helped The Latics stun the former table-toppers 3-1.

Scotland has struggled to get up to speed in England's top flight following his summer switch, but was pleased with his weekend showing.

"This was my first start for the club and I'll be disappointed if I don't start the next one," explained the 30-year-old striker.

"To come into this was a massive situation for me and the team and it's arguably the best team performance I've been involved in."


However, Scotland could be disappointed for their upcoming game against Hull City with manager Roberto Martinez insisting it is a squad game.

"I always look at the whole squad, I never work with 11 players," said the Spaniard. "But I don't make the decisions, football makes the decisions.

"The players disappointed not to be in the starting XI have been working very hard behind the scenes and they have been making their point on the training ground.

"There are many options we have. Everyone is ready and in any game we shouldn't be too surprised at changes in the formation because we are going to be as good as the squad is and it is not about 11 players."
