Wigan defender Emmerson Boyce wants the club to use the international break to spend some time on the training pitch.

Latics boss Roberto Martinez was happy to see his side show some fighting spirit despite being held to an entertaining 2-2 draw at home to Everton at the weekend.

The draw ended a run of three successive defeats, but Boyce believes the club have yet to be rewarded for their level of performances shown from their opening seven matches.

And the versatile player wants the men who are not going on international duty to get some work done ahead of the trip to Swansea next Saturday.

"It's international week now and that means a lot of the lads flying all around the world," Boyce told the Evening Post.

"That makes it hard to analyse Saturday's game, but we'll get plenty of work done on the training ground and try to put right what went wrong.

"Overall I thought the performance was very good - we created loads of chances, we scored goals when we needed to and we were so close to what would have been a vital win.

"The positive was that we didn't lose, and we can certainly take heart from much of the performance. We should be able to see out the game for another five minutes, but we couldn't cope.

"At the end of the day, though, Everton are a good team, they grind out results and that was the case again."
