What The Bosses Said - Latics Vs Villa

What The Bosses Said - Latics Vs Villa


Following the Wigan Athletic Aston Villa game yesterday at the JJB both Steve Bruce and Martin O`Neil had a lot to say about their teams performance in the game which turned out to be an emphatic victory for the Villa, lets see what they said:

Latics boss Steve Bruce:

'We haven't done our jobs defensively.

'That has been our strength because in the games that we've lost we have lost by the odd goal.

'Three of the four that we conceded today were so poor defensively and the mistakes were not acceptable at this level.

'If you do that against a really good Aston Villa side then you have your backsides kicked and we certainly had that today.'


Villa boss Martin O'Neill:

'It was a great performance and a result I had not expected.

'With us having played on Thursday night, it was a concern, but there were some terrific performances all told.

'I was worries about today's game so for us to win today in the manner that we did was great.

'We have competition for places which is something that two years ago at Villa we didn't have so that's encouraging.'
