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

Mario Looks For Bouncebackability


Wigan Athletic skipper Mario Melchiot reckons that the team let themselves down at Portsmouth at the weekend and now they must bounce back against Fulham on Sunday by putting in the work this week.

The Pompey game saw the Latics capitulate and that worries Mario, he says that the team didn`t wake up until they were 2-0 down and then it was too late for Martinez to change anything.

Speaking to the clubs official website Melchiot said:'We had a slow start and, although it wasn't as bad as the one we had at Burnley, it took us a long time to get going'

'By the time we woke up, we were 2-0 down, and it's too late for the manager to turn things round at half-time.

'We made it too difficult for ourselves. It was harder still when the third goal went in, and we couldn't turn things round.

'We have to understand that this type of game is the hardest for us to play. The crowd is really close to the pitch, and it's always a difficult place for any team to come.

'We weren't think about anything other than winning this game, and to get beat is very tough to take.'


Now with his eyes firmly focused on Sundays visit to the DW Stadium by Fulham the Holland international is determined that the team don`t get caught out again and says by each player focusing on their own qualities that they can bring to the team he is sure that they can bounce back.

Melchiot continued: "The most important thing is that we bounce back, and we learn from all the mistakes we have made.

'You win as a team and lose as a team but, as an individual, you need to focus on your own qualities and make sure you try to deliver as much as you can for the team.

'This was a big game for us and a game that we should have been looking at picking up points in.

'We have to make sure we work hard this week because we can't continue like this. We have to make sure we turn up from the start and not just later on.'
