WIGAN boss Leam Richardson isn’t getting carried away following his side’s 4-0 win against Wanderers at the UniBol.

James McClean bagged a brace, with Will Keane and Callum Lang also getting on the scoresheet on a day to forget for the Whites.

The result sees the Latics maintain their place in the top three, and Richardson was delighted with his side’s performance.

"The most pleasing part I thought was the application of the players and the work ethic," he told Wigan Today.

"I thought we imposed ourselves in the right areas at the right times, and we also have that quality in the final third.

"We worked very hard in the week, because you've got to respect every team in this league.

"Bolton are going ever so well, they're a fantastic team, with some fantastic players and a fantastic management team.

"We knew we'd have our hands full today, and it's full credit to the players and also the fans, who gave us everything all afternoon."

Wanderers are now 10th in the league table, having taken 18 points from their opening 13 matches back in the third tier.

Ian Evatt’s men will be looking to bounce back on Tuesday night when they head to Home Park to take on Plymouth Argyle (KO 7:45pm).
