Bruce pleased with Wigan Athletic preseason

Bruce pleased with Wigan Athletic preseason

Latics boss Steve Bruce has said that he is pleased with the way preseason has been going down at the JJB and that last weeks two games at Barnsley and Sheffield Wednesday gave his side a good work out.

Bruce claims that the goal on Saturday for new signing Amr Zaki will have done him the world of good and that there is a lot more to come from him.

Bruce said:

'It was a good workout and in the last couple of games we've not had any problems scoring goals."

'It was nice to see Zaki come on and score. That will have done him good and hopefully there is more to come from him."

With his focus firmly set on the West Ham opener Bruce isn`t getting carried away by these last two results and he will wait till then before making any judgement.

Bruce said:

'Pre-season is all about getting through the games and I'll tell you a week on Saturday at West Ham whether I think we have moulded together nicely."

'I've been in the game long enough not to get too carried away by friendly results. Sometimes you think you're doing great and then you lose your first match of the season."

'We're looking okay at the moment, I was pleased with how Daniel de Ridder and Olivier Kapo played at Sheffield Wednesday."

Bruce though is happy with the quality of the squad and he said that he was very pleased with the new lads brought in and the extra that they bring to the squad, he continued:

'I feel we've strengthened the squad with the four or five signings we've made. They've brought some extra quality in, which is what I set out to do.'

Well so far so good, but Bruce is right lets not get too carried away, the proof of the pudding is in the eating and that first course will be served up at West Ham on the 16th August
