Aaron Hughes wants Fulham to pick up where they left off after their 3-0 win against West Brom when they face Wigan on Saturday.

Fulham’s victory over West Brom last weekend halted a run of back-to-back Premier League defeats against Manchester United and West Ham and defender Hughes is looking to build some momentum.

“It was nice to come back after the international break and get a win after the disappointment of West Ham United,” the Northern Ireland international told Fulham’s official website.

“So we got that and that’s something we’ll take into the game on Saturday up at Wigan Athletic.

“We both play good football and obviously Roberto Martinez is big on how he plays – getting the ball down and knocking it around.

“They have a nice style about them and I guess that’s what we’re known for as well so it should be a good football match.

“I think it will be a close one too and we’ll be hoping we can get something from the game.”
