Wigan Athletic have not been looking at the league table despite moving top of League One, says boss Gary Caldwell.

The Latics came from a goal down to win 5-1 at Shrewsbury and move a point above second-placed Burton.

Caldwell's side are unbeaten in 2016 and have won four games in a row to sit top-of-the-table.

"No we don't look [at the table]. We didn't look when we were 14th after four games so we won't be looking now," he told BBC Radio Manchester.

"We focus on the performance, we analyse that, look at it and see where we can improve."

Wigan are looking for an immediate return to the Championship after relegation last season in what is 33-year-old Caldwell's first full season in management.

"The pleasing aspect for me is I see a team that's playing extremely well yet I know they can be even better," he added.

"They know that themselves they come into work to work hard and try and get better, so that's a great thing for me."

Wigan chairman David Sharpe is on BBC Radio Manchester's Monday Football Hour on Monday, 4 April at 18:00 BST and will be available on the iPlayer afterwards.
