What the bosses said Latics Bolton

What the bosses said Latics Bolton

The game between Wigan Athletic and Bolton at the JJB has got a lot of people talking, the sending off, the referee, Latics missed chances, Boltons missed chances, the result, but the two opinions that cut the most are the managers, Steve Bruce and Gary Megson, lets see what they have to say:

Latics boss Steve Bruce

'It was a huge win for us and credit to the players for the way they battled with 10 men for nearly 90 minutes.

'There were some fantastic performances out there and in particular Emile Heskey's goal could prove to be vital for us.

'I've looked at the challenge and I don't think it is a red card. He's tried to win the ball, it's one footed and I think that because of the climate we are in, it is leaving the referees in a difficult position.

'I think if it hadn't been for the Eduardo tackle a couple of weeks ago then that would have been a yellow card.'

Bolton boss Gary Megson

'There were a lot of harsh words said at half-time because that performance was not acceptable.

'We've rested players midweek for this game and clearly it hasn't worked because we didn't turn up or start well.

'We looked lethargic and leggy and weren't good enough and we are right in the cart.

'I've seen a replay of the Michael Brown incident and it did look like a handball but I think when you are down the bottom you tend to focus on these decisions a bit more.'

Personally I dont care about anything that went on today, we won thats all that matters
