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

What the bosses said - Boro Vs Latics


Following the game at the Riverside stadium between Middlesbrough and Wigan Athletic both Latics boss Steve Bruce and Boro boss Gareth Southgate spoke to the press, lets see what they had to say:

Latics boss Steve Bruce

Following a crunching but fair challenge by Lee Cattermole Boro player Didier Diggard was stretchered off, Bruce said:

'Nobody wants to see anybody going off but unfortunately it happens.

'It was a perfectly good challenge. The crowd went up, and I have to compliment the referee who handled it very well


Talking about the game itself Bruce continues:

'We've lost a bit of our cutting edge with the changes we had to make in January. It's never easy to rebuild halfway through the season and it's going to to take a bit of time for us.

'All credit to the players, they've rolled up their sleeves again. Defensively we were terrific and the longer it went on, the more I thought we were going to nick it.'


Boro boss Gareth Southgate

'Everyone is up for the fight.
'We know it'll be extremely tough. Everyone else thinks we're gone but there's a lot of football to be played.

'We're going to have to win matches people won't expect us to, but we're capable of doing that. We're not giving much away so we have a chance.'
