Bruce Looking For 3 Points in the North East

Bruce Looking For 3 Points in the North East


Wigan Athletic boss Steve Bruce faces the unenviable task of trying to lift his side in time for Saturdays trip to the North East to face Newcastle United following the embarrassment of Tuesday nights debacle against Arsenals youth team

The game at St. James` Park gives the Latics a chance to get some confidence back in the side as they face a very poor Newcastle side with the match a real 6 pointer affair.

Bruce told reporters:

'We got our backsides kicked by a very good, young, talented Arsenal side.

'We now have to dust ourselves and have a go again. Newcastle is a very big game for us and we need the points.'

I don't think Bruce is worth the 3m we paid for him, what has he done?? we're just above the relegation area and we have been knocked out of the cup. he keeps saying every time we go into a game that he will do anything for us to win and we never do. he says "this is our turn", i'm sorry steve but you have enough chances and you never take them. you're just making excuses and saying the players don't pertform, i agree tyhey haven't been at their best but can't you see there's a trend. YOU'RE NOT DOING ENOUGH!! my prediction for the game... 4-1 to newcastle Danny O

Wigan 1-2 Bradford Match Report

Latics dropped to a deserved 1-2 defeat at the hands of Bradford, our first loss at home in the league since March. It was an off-day, defence looked shaky from the off and once Nick Powell went off injured, we never really threatened to score. We are back at the DW on Tuesday against Doncaster Rovers, an opportunity to get back on track.

Paul Cook named an unchanged side from our last league game, with Michael Jacobs returning to the starting line-up.
