Wigan first - Harry

Harry Redknapp insists he hasn't looked beyond Saturday's trip to Wigan even with the Champions League quarter-final against Real Madrid only days away.

The manager described the Premier League encounter at the DW Stadium as a 'massive game' as we bid for a place in the top four.

We then travel to Madrid's famous Bernabeu for the first leg of the glamour quarter-final against the Spanish giants on Tuesday.

But Harry insists his focus is on the Latics. "We can't come out and start working on how we're going to play Real Madrid because we've got to play Wigan on Saturday," he said after training on Thursday.

"Wigan is a massive game for us.

"They had a good result in their last game when they beat Birmingham and I've great respect for their manager (Roberto Martinez), I think he's fantastic.

"But we've got to go there and try to make sure we get a win.

"We can't think about Real Madrid until we've played Wigan."
