Goalkeeper Joel Coleman is brimming with confidence after not conceding a goal in 395 minutes of football.
The 20-year-old has kept four clean sheets in a row, against Burton Albion, Chesterfield, Swindon Town and recently against Walsall on Saturday.
After moving out of the relegation places for the first time since November, Coleman admitted the confidence amongst the players is the reason for the good form.
He said: "Everyone is full of confidence and that comes with the new manager. If you don’t play well, you know that you will just be taken out. Everyone is fighting for their place at the moment and everyone is playing well for him.
"We need to keep pushing. We know we are nowhere near safe yet so we just need to keep pushing to make us safer. The sooner we get safe, the less nervy it gets.”
Latics travel to Oakwell tonight to face Barnsley who sit just outside the play off places and the goalkeeper believes it is a game his side can win.
“They have a big crowd and they will get behind them but we feel like we can take any team in this league,” he admitted.
"It showed that on Saturday and against Burton the other week. We are full of confidence and raring to go again.”
Coleman is getting stronger and stronger with every game he plays and he commented: “I’m more experienced now.
“I’m used to the league and I’m feeling confident going into every game so long may it continue."
