Victor Moses is hoping that the Latics experience a change in fortune this weekend against a stuttering Wolves side.

The young winger has recently received clearance on his nationality switch, allowing him to play for Nigera.

Now Moses is hoping that lady luck shines on the blues this weekend and the present run of eight straight defeats for the Latics comes to an end.

Speaking to the Wigan Evening Post, Moses said: "That's just the way it's going for us at the moment, and our luck has got to change sooner or later.

"It's still early days, though, and we're all confident of turning it round. Everyone is working hard on and off the field, and it has to change sooner or later. It can't go on.

"The only way we're going to get out of the position we're in is by picking up wins, and that's the way we've got to look at it.

"It means the Wolves game will be even bigger than it would otherwise have been, but we are more than capable of getting the three points.

"No-one's looking at the league table at the moment. All we're concentrating on is working hard on putting in another good performance, and hopefully the rest will take care of itself."

Moses himself has shown glimpses of his potential, but if the Latics are to survive this season the former Crystal Palace winger needs to have a bigger impact for the duration of the 90 minutes.
