Wigan Athletic 1-0 Sunderland
Following the game yesterday both managers, a relieved Roberto Martinez and an angry Steve Bruce spoke to the press, lets see what they had to say:
Latics boss Roberto Martinez :
'It has been a very painful and hurtful week and the humiliation comes if you don't react. But the players showed terrific character and bounced back.
'No-one more so than Chris Kirkland, who was brilliant today. Chris showed that if England need a goalkeeper it's clear he has got everything.
'We looked very mature, controlled the game and created many opportunities. To keep Sunderland to one opportunity on target shows great character. Everyone at Wigan Athletic should be proud.
'We are a team who are very hard to beat at home and we showed that today.'

Sunderland boss Steve Bruce
'It's frustrating and disappointing, for sure. That's a shadow of what we've produced for four or five weeks. The performance level was not there and that's sad for me.
'In the first half it looked like we just went through the motions. The first goal was always going to be vital but we didn't get anywhere near it, especially in the first half.
'The goal was sloppy and sums up our whole afternoon.
'We know you can't play well every week but on days like these we've got to be resilient and do enough to take a point. I'll have a miserable weekend this weekend.'
