What The Bosses Said - Latics 0-0 Pompey

Wigan Athletic and Portsmouth played out a goalless draw last night at the DW Stadium and though the Latics managed 24 attempts with 10 on target you couldnt really say that we came close to a break through.

A very disappointing result, at this stage of the season results are all that matter, leaves us still searching for that win to keep the club in the Premier League for the next campaign.

After the game both bosses, Roberto Martinez and Avram Grant spoke to the media to give their views on the evening, lets take a look at what they had to say:

Latics boss Roberto Martinez:

'It's frustrating because we had all the possession but Pompey had a game-plan, they got behind the ball and made it very difficult.

'It was one of those situations where you can get punished if you don't concentrate, and the lads did well in that respect. We were brave but we tried to win with the heart rather than the head - but we've got a point.

'There's a bit of disappointment and if decisions had gone our way it could have been different, but there are no easy games.'

Pompey boss Avram Grant:

'We have many players who were injured so we used some players from the academy and I was very pleased with them.

'We needed to do it because we have a very small squad.'

Former Latics man Michael Brown also spoke to the media afterwards, very interesting, to see what Browine said visit skysports.com
