Wigan remain the Premier League bottom three, although victory over the Swans will take the Lancashire team level on points with out-of-sorts Newcastle.

The Latics are also preparing for next Saturday's FA Cup final against Manchester City, but Laudrup does not expect the Wembley showpiece to be a distraction.

Laudrup said: "It will be a very hard game. I know they have the cup final coming up on the weekend, but we are talking about a team fighting for their football life.

"They will have been looking at the fixtures knowing they have two games left at home and they have Arsenal away.

"They know getting something out of the Arsenal game will be difficult. Roberto Martinez is like every manager, he will be looking at the numbers and he will want six points from their two home games and hope it is enough.

"They will come at us with everything they have."
