Wigan midfielder James McArthur has welcomed his side's two-week break after clinching a memorable win over Bolton.
The Scot scored the winner for the Latics in the crucial 2-1 victory over the Trotters at the Reebok Stadium on Saturday.
It was a result that kept their survival hopes alive and they are now just two points away from safety.
After their shock defeat to League Two side Swindon in the FA Cup, Wigan now have next weekend free before they face Aston Villa.
The squad are travelling to Oman for a week's training in a warm climate and McArthur is relieved by the timing.
He told the Wigan Evening Post: "It's a good time for a break. It gives us the chance to get together as a team and also rejuvenate the bodies.
"But we'd play the next game tomorrow if we could.
"The lads are full of confidence and we can't wait to build on this result."
Five teams are separated by just two points in the bid for Premier League survival, with 13 games remaining.
The Wigan fans showed their support for Saturday's clash by turning up in vast numbers, with some walking from the DW Stadium in a fundraising effort for the Emma Hoolin Appeal.
McArthur was pleased with the following and said: "The fans were outstanding - that's the best they've been since I've been at the club. From the first minute to the 95th they were loud and proud, and it shows how much of a difference they can make.
"We know many of them had walked it to the game, and that's what this football club is all about- everyone is together, and that will only help us try and stay in the Premier League."
