Sunderland full-back Danny Rose believes there is more to come from the Black Cats this season.
Rose, who is currently on loan from Tottenham Hotspur, says the club's new signings can be a key part of a turn in fortune for Sunderland.
"There are new faces," said Rose. "Steven Fletcher has been unbelievable and as soon as we get Adam Johnson match-fit, I can seem him being great for Sunderland.
"We are still growing and everyone is getting fitter and we will see where it takes us in a few weeks."
Although Sunderland remain unbeaten in the Premier League, their victory against Wigan was the first of the season and it came as a relief to Rose.
"Wigan was a must-win, especially when we have drawn the first four games of the season.
"No disrespect to Wigan, but it was a game we all thought we could win."
The victory gave Sunderland a much-needed boost as they next head for champions Manchester City in what will be their toughest encounter so far.
Rose added: "We needed some points going to City next week because that's going to be a very hard game."
