Well I don’t think we could have asked for a better Easter weekend, six points from six and we’ve showed people that we can win whatever it takes.

On Good Friday we put in a slick performance live in front of the Sky Sports cameras, before we battled hard past the resilient 10 men of Rochdale on Easter Monday.

Add to that the fact that league leaders Burton struggled to just one point from six over their two games – a 0-0 draw at home the relegation fighting Oldham followed by a 2-0 loss at Millwall.

The latter result shows how good of a performance our 0-0 draw at the New Den was with 10 men.

As you may know, Walsall didn’t play over the weekend because they had enough players out on international duties to postpone their fixtures.

And even though they can catch up to our points tally with their two games in hand, everyone at Wigan Athletic seems to be looking up rather than over their shoulder.

18 games unbeaten and we still haven’t lost in 2016, that kind of form breathes confidence into everybody associated with the club.

Yes, of course Walsall can catch us but the pressure is on them to win their games, not on us.

And the pressure seems to be getting to Nigel Clough and co. at Burton as well.

We’re one point off the Brewers at the League One summit and there’s a growing feeling that the trophy is ours for the taking.

I don’t want to be in danger of speaking to soon, but it’s in our hands and I think we can definitely win the title and, at the very least, be automatically promoted.

So if we fail miserably in these last seven fixtures, then you know who to blame – me.

However, realistically speaking I think we’ve all got one eye on that League One crown; especially when Michael Jacobs is ready to make his first team comeback at such an important stage of the season.
