Following yesterdays game at the Reebok Stadium between Bolton Wanderers and Wigan Athletic both bosses, Roberto Martinez and Owen Coyle spoke to the press, lets see what they had to say:
Latics boss Roberto Martinez:
'It was a huge, huge shock because the nature of the goals were really soft, that is the top and bottom.
"You can't win football games if you concede the nature of the goals we did. I felt that once the first goal went in it was a big ask. The game went away from us and got harder and we looked a little bit mentally drained. Maybe the Monday performance affected us that way.
"I felt there two key moments in the game. The possible penalty in the first half we did not get for the foul on Rodallega and the one in the second half.
"Zat Knight didn't get the ball and Hugo would not go down like that when he could have shot at goal. You look at the penalty Bolton got and the one we didn't get, there was an inconsistency.'

Bolton boss Owen Coyle
'When I took the job I believed I could keep Bolton in the league. The short-term aim was to do that. We have taken a step along that road.
'It was all about getting the three points. To get it on the back of an accomplished performance was terrific. I thought the players' desire and their hunger to get about the game and the quality they showed at times was very pleasing.
'I pride myself on making sure we have a terrific home record. In my tenure here we have lost one game and that was against Arsenal in my first match.
'This was a massive victory and gives us a bit of breathing space. That is all it does. We now have to focus on the games coming up and go and earn points.'
