Callum McManaman, centre, scores the opening goal of the game for Wigan

Winger Callum McManaman and midfielder James McArthur were two players Martinez recalled and they rewarded the Spaniard with displays full of Premier League class. McManaman struck a fine opening goal in the 31st minute and Arouna Kone tapped home a second shortly before the break.

McArthur struck a brilliant third goal from the edge of the penalty area early in the second half and although Huddersfield substitute Lee Novak headed home just after the hour, it was not enough to trouble Wigan, who emphatically underlined their superiority when Kone thundered home a fourth goal in the closing stages.
