Roberto Martinez: Wigan boss shows support to charity

Joseph Kendrick, who celebrates his fourth birthday on Thursday, was diagnosed with Non-Kekotic Hyperglycinemia (NKH) soon after being born.

And his parents were told it was not likely he would live longer than 10 days, and if he did he would not reach his first birthday.

Joseph has defied the odds and recently started school, with Wigan being particularly supportive of the youngster as manager Roberto Martinez and several players have become ambassadors for the charity 'Joseph's Goal' set up earlier this year.

Speaking ahead of the Manchester City tie, Joseph's father Paul Kendrick said: "It'll be such an emotional day to see Joseph lead the players out at Wembley, and it'll really boost awareness of the condition around the world."

icky van Wolfswinkel's remarkable record of one goal from one game at least deserves an honourable mention. And I'm willing to bet that at least one of Costa, Ulloa or Enner Valencia will earn a place on the list by the end of the season. Probably not Costa
