'If It's Football, It's Vital'

What the bosses said Latics Vs Reading

The game between Wigan Athletic and Reading at the JJB yesterday was a very poor affair with both sides playing nervous football, did we expect anything else?

The two bosses, Steve Bruce and Steve Coppell satisfied at the end lets see what they have to say about it:

Latics boss Steve Bruce:

"It was very tense but who knows it might be the point that keeps us up, but we are close that is for sure.

"There are five other teams who need to win and it is still in our hands and we will concentrate on Aston Villa and hopefully we will get a point.

"The league table is as you were with two games to play but we can finally put the situation to bed if the teams below us don`t win."

'We started well but lost some impetus after Mario went off'

'It petered out into two nervous, anxious teams fighting for their lives.

'For both sets of players the occasion and the magnitude made them forget how to play the game but who knows that might be the point that keeps us in the league.'

'I can't see Mario coming back for the remaining two games of the season and we now have to focus on those.'

Reading boss Steve Coppell:

'It wasn't very easy on the eye'

'When so much is at stake, it's difficult to know whether to stick or twist. I'm happy to have got a point, though, and would have taken it at 3pm. We were always prepared for it to go to the 38th game and we've now got to go and do it in the final two matches.'
