Robbie Keane is determined to build on the win against Wigan and continue climbing the Premier League.

We jumped up three places to 14th in the table after Sunday’s 4-0 success with the Latics swept aside in the first half as a double from Jermaine Jenas and Aaron Lennon’s fine volley saw us charge into a 3-0 lead.

Darren Bent added the fourth in the second half and it could have been more – Chris Kirkland made two fine saves, JJ had a goal disallowed and we struck the woodwork twice.

“We’re capable of going on a run and we know if we get a few wins back to back, we can shoot up the league,” reflected Robbie.

“It’s great to be away from the bottom three and that will give us confidence as well.

“It was important with it being a home game and Wigan going into it in the same position as us that we got the three points and the way we did it was full credit to the lads,” added Robbie, who set up the first goal and insisted converting early chances paved the way for victory.

“The early goal set us up, we scored another soon after that and didn’t take our foot off the gas and that was important.

“We kept going, looked to score more goals and the pleasing factor is winning with another clean sheet. I can’t remember Wigan really threatening.

“But I was impressed with the way we went about it from the first minute to the last.”
