'Wigan can spoil the party' - Boyce eyes Community Shield triumph over Manchester United

With David Moyes winning just two of his seven games in charge of the Premier League champions, the defender hopes to further dampen the Scot's spirits at Wembley on Sunday
Wigan defender Emmerson Boyce is looking to "spoil the party" as David Moyes makes his high-profile bow as Manchester United manager in the Community Shield.

The FA Cup winners take on the Premier League champions at Wembley on Sunday in the traditional curtain-raiser to the new season.

Moyes has won just two of his first seven games in charge of the Red Devils, and Boyce knows the Scot will be keen to avoid "giant-killing headlines".

"It is going to be David Moyes’ first major game trophy-wise and he obviously wants to go there and make a statement, but hopefully we can spoil the party," the defender told talkSPORT.

"It will take some pressure away from him if he does win it. Wigan are in the Championship so he won't want those sort of giant-killing headlines."

Wigan kicked off their Championship campaign last Saturday with a 4-0 win over Barnsley, and Boyce believes the confidence boost following their relegation from the top flight will serve the Latics well at Wembley.

"It is a one-off game and the way we played against Barnsley, we go there full of confidence. We are going there to win," he continued.

"It is a showpiece event but we will take it as serious as it comes. There is no pressure on us, we can go and enjoy the day."
