MARK Beevers refuses to believe that Wanderers’ survival hopes are cooked.

Midweek results left Phil Parkinson’s side seven points adrift and with a big task on their hands to salvage their Championship place for next season.

Saturday’s game against Wigan Athletic is being seen as win-or-bust by many supporters and Beevers feels it is just as important for them to keep faith as it is for the dressing room.

“We believe it and hopefully we can get the fans behind us to believe it too,” he said. “On paper, with the quality we have got, I don’t think anyone would shy away from saying we are underachieving.

“The squad has changed massively, but I’d still say we had quality last season and it’s the same this time around.

“It is all about how it goes on the day. You can have that quality and still be a poor team and I have seen that in the past.

“We are a good bunch of lads here, though, and we feel like that will be an important factor going into those final few games which will decide whether we stay up or not.

“I believe we can still do it, though, and so do the rest of the lads.”

The prospect of dragging Wigan into trouble is also on the agenda at the DW Stadium as Paul Cook’s side have faltered in the last few weeks.

“You’ve got to look at the sides above you and try to catch them,” Beevers said. “With so few games left we need to be taking points from every game that comes our way.”
