Charlie relishing run-in

Vedran Corluka can't wait to get stuck into the month that could define our season.

We have seven matches in April including Arsenal and Chelsea in the Premier League and the glamour quarter-final tie against Real Madrid in the Champions League.

Every game is crucial though as we bid for a place in the top four and it all starts at Wigan on Saturday.

We travel to the DW Stadium sitting fifth in the table, four points behind City with a game in hand.

Wigan sit bottom of the table but beat Birmingham City last time out and are just three points from Blackburn in 13th!

"We have a lot of games in April and we need to start another run going now," said Charlie, who played twice for Croatia during the international break.

"Our focus on each match shouldn’t be difficult, we have to enjoy these times as players.

"To play for a place in the Premier League’s top four and the Champions League as well is a great thing for everyone at the club.

“It’s been a fantastic season so far, our fans are loving it and so are we.

"We have to remember where we were three years ago, it’s incredible really. If you had told me then we would be challenging for the top four and in the last eight of the Champions League, I would have thought you were crazy!

“But with the players we have here and the manager too, we deserve to be where we are.

"We worked hard for the last three years and have made big improvements. We have real belief in ourselves and when you have that, anything is possible."
