The Latics remain inside the Premier League drop zone entering the final month of the season.

Five points separate them from safety at present, but they do have a game in hand on all of those sides above them.

Wigan have pulled off remarkable escape acts in the past, and Maloney concedes they will need to repeat those heroics in 2012/13 if they are to preserve their top-flight status.

On the back of a 2-2 draw with Tottenham Hotspur in their last outing, the Scotland international said: "At the minute it still feels like it's in our hands.

"But we might have to win three of the last four to keep it that way.

"A point against a side like Spurs is never a bad result but it kind of felt like a defeat.

"The vital thing at this time of year is to pick up three points, and again we didn't do that."

Desire

Defender Ronnie Stam agrees that Wigan, who are also readying themselves for an FA Cup final appearance, need to start picking up points fast if they are to avoid the drop.

He said: "It doesn't matter how well we perform, the thing now is we have to win.

"But dropping points so late on will only drive our desire on."
