Wigan Athletic boss Roberto Martinez spoke about the togetherness of the team following the 1-0 win against Spurs at White Hart Lane on Saturday, whilst Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp said that the Champions League game in midweek couldn`t be used as an excuse, lets see what they had to say:
Latics boss Roberto Martinez:
'I had a huge belief that things would click into place for us. The talent within the squad is incredible. Yes we're light in numbers but you cannot question the ability we have.
'All we have been missing was that desire and love to play for Wigan Athletic, but at White Hart Lane we showed that which was the most pleasing aspect.
'We have a group of players who are desperate to play for this club, and that's what counts.
'Until you have that commitment all the other aspects of your game are irrelevant. The success this club has had through the years is based on that desire and we showed it in abundance against top opposition.
'We've made a statement for ourselves and created a bit of history for the club. Our first win here at Spurs is something to celebrate, but we need to keep improving on this for the rest of the season.'

Spurs boss Harry Redknapp:
'I fear these matches more than any other game'
'These are not games you enjoy. People turn up here today and they expect you to walk all over them. After two minutes we give the ball away and it's 'Oooh!' and they're on your case.'
'People have got to work harder to get into the game. Too many today were too easily marked out of it.
'We lacked the guile to break them down'
'You should come here today and feel fantastic about yourself, not have a hangover or feel lethargic. You should go out there knowing the crowd love you and the way you played last Wednesday, and be ready to play today.'
