James McCarthy admits it is 'about time' Wigan started getting results from their performances after winning their last two encounters.

The Latics, 19th in the Premier League, have boosted their survival hopes with back-to-back successes, beating Stoke 2-0 at the DW Stadium on Saturday a week after pulling off a shock 2-1 triumph over Liverpool at Anfield.

Prior to that, Wigan had lost only once in six but also claimed maximum points on just one occasion within that run, frequently dominating play in matches without fully capitalising due to their profligacy in front of goal.

Although they were guilty of some bad misses against the Potters, with another victory achieved it is an issue the side appear to be addressing, much to the delight of midfielder McCarthy.

About time

He said: "We have done really, really well (recently) and just not come up with the finishing touch.

"Thankfully (against Stoke) Antolin (Alcaraz) has come up with the first and Victor (Moses) the second - two great goals and hopefully that can kick us on. It is about time, to be honest. We have been through sticky patches, myself included.

"I have not scored this season which is disappointing. But the main thing is Wigan and if I can do a job and we win, I will do that all day.

"We went to Anfield and got three points and if we keep sticking as a group we will be fine."
