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

What the bosses said Villa Vs Latics

The game at Villa Park didnt turn out the way that most people had forecast.

Villa charging for Europe, the Latics hoping to secure a place in the Premier League for a fourth year, most said Villa win or maybe a lucky draw.

Didnt quite turn out that way though, lets see what the bosses, Villas Martin O'Neill and Latics' Steve Bruce had to say about the game:

Villa boss Martin O'Neill

'It would be hard to explain why we were so flat for so long"

'We had been coming into the game with loads of confidence and playing brilliantly of late.

'I can understand the first 15 or 20 minutes being a bit tentative. After that I thought we would settle down and get into a bit of fluency but it never materialised.

'The goals put us on the back foot and the second really deflated us.

'We had this opportunity to put pressure on Everton for the UEFA Cup spot. The crowds have been fantastic and have been used to better fare than that.'

Latics boss Steve Bruce

'It's as good as I've ever done in management, in terms of where we were going into the Blackburn game in mid-December with nine points.

'To get 31 points since the turn of the year is fantastic for the players.

'I'm delighted we've managed to do it and do it in some style against Villa who have been playing well.

'I'm sure the fans are delighted seeing a little town like Wigan year after year staying in the Premier League.'
