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

What The Boss Says - Latics VS Blackburn


In the build up to the Boxing Day clash between Wigan Athletic and Blackburn Rovers at the DW Stadium Latics boss Roberto Martinez has spoken about the game and he envisages a tough encounter with Rovers looking for the three points.

Lets see what he said:

'Blackburn are a very competitive side, and they'll look to come here in search of a win. I think it will be a very open game, but they do restrict teams to very little, they're organised, strong and they can score goals from out of nowhere.

'They also have a huge threat from dead-ball situations and we'll have to be aware of that. The concentration levels from set-pieces are vital, but we've been tested on that this season, more recently against Stoke City, and we've showed that we can cope with that.

'Overall, I'm sure it will be an exciting game to watch between two teams looking for a win.'

'Everyone is fit and ready for the game apart from Momo, who picked up an injury against Liverpool. But he's a very fit boy and I'm sure he'll back sooner than people expect.'



Speaking about the season so far Martinez acknowledges his sides inconsistencies but says that it is now time to show the right attitude in every game, he continued:


'We're almost at the half-way point now and we can draw many conclusions on the season so far. I think we've been our own worst enemy at times, but to be honest that can be the easiest thing to correct, not so much when you're relying on other teams' performances.

'On the other hand we've shown many good signs, proved that we can compete against the best and we just now need to improve our consistency.

'We're looking forward to the second-half of the campaign and we need to show that attitude on Saturday against Blackburn.

'When you look at the league, everything from 10th position downwards is very open, there aren't many points between that group of teams. For me it's not the right time to be focusing too much on the table, we have to look at ourselves and make sure we can rid the inconsistency we've shown.

'We're on the back of three results that don't reflect the performances we put in, and that's something we need to correct.'
