Midfielder eyes starting role

Fraser Fyvie hopes to have fought his way into the Wigan first-team by the end of the season and says he could not be at a better club.

The midfielder has yet to break into the starting eleven since arriving from Aberdeen in the summer and his only appearances have come as a late substitute in the Carling Cup games against Nottingham Forest and West Ham.

It is a bit of a change for the youngster who was a regular at Pittodrie before his move to Wigan, but he is remaining patient and says he could not be at a better place as he looks to further his career.

Fyvie believes boss Roberto Martinez is the man to get the best out of him and is convinced his chance will eventually come.

"I'm not in the limelight so much now I'm at Wigan so I'm getting the chance to improve my skills," he revealed. "I'm looking to get into the first team this season.

"Obviously I've played first-team football so I know what it's like. I've played a few reserve games and the manager is there every week. He encourages us and tells us to keep going.

"He signed me so he has obviously got a bit of faith in me. He's probably the best manager I could be under at this stage of my career. All the boys at Wigan love him and couldn't speak more highly of him."
