What The Bosses Say - Latics Vs Stoke

What The Bosses Say - Latics Vs Stoke


In the build up to this evenings game between Wigan Athletic and Stoke City at the DW Stadium both managers, Latics` Roberto Martinez and Stokes Tony Pulis spoke to the press, lets see what they had to say:


Latics boss Roberto Martinez:

'Its important that at home we make it an intimidating place'

'In football sometimes its better to be lucky than to be good, at the moment we have been very good in many areas.

'Last time we met Stoke we stood up to their physicality, their dead ball situations and their throw-ins, in the end we were one kick away from three points'

'We know that we can create against them but we need to be really focused so as not to have any slip ups against the power in their play.'

'Stoke are in a very good moment of form, they got a good result at the weekend against Blackburn and a good result at Sunderland last week.'

'We need to treat each game now like a cup final, these are important games and it is important that we bank on the good performances to get the points'




Stoke boss Tony Pulis:

'On their day they (Wigan) can cause anyone problems'

'We went and watched them against Everton 10 days ago, they were very unfortunate to get beat, they were by far the better team and could have scored a hatful of goals'

'We`ll have to be right on our case and right on our metal to go there and get a result'

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.
