Blues fully deserved their victory although just the one goal from on loan winger Lloyd Dyer earned them three points against The Latics.
"It was very important to come out in the last home game and put in a performance befitting the progress we have made," the Blues boss said after the game.
"We always looked the most likely to win. Some of our attacking play was very good and in the end it was fitting that Lloyd scored the only goal with a great finish.
"It shows what a fantastic player he is and the fine career he has had.
"Who knows what can happen if we are able to add three or four quality players during the summer?"
