Manager praises travelling army

Lee Johnson saluted Latics' travelling army following yesterday's 4-3 win at Stevenage on the opening day of their 2013/14 Sky Bet League 1 campaign.

Latics' manager was delighted as 735 fans made the lengthy journey to Hertfordshire.

Johnson said: "It was a brilliant turnout and they sang their hearts out.

"Of course it lifts the players and it is like having a 12th man as Delia Smith says.

"I thank them for the effort they put in because they were as much a part of the win as the players."
