WIGAN Athletic assistant manager Learn Richardson believes the club has a strong enough squad to compete in the Championship.
Speaking to the club's official website he said: "Everybody is champing to play, and nobody is more conscious of that than me and the gaffer."
He added: "A good team doesn't win leagues, but a good squad takes you a long way to doing that and last year was no different.
"Who knows? If we keep a good, healthy squad together and keep picking the wins up then we could create something."
