What The Bosses Say - Latics v Wolves

What The Bosses Say - Latics v Wolves


Wigan Athletic entertain Wolverhampton Wanderers at the DW Stadium on Saturday in an important Premier League clash, following the opening six games both clubs have five points and are currently near the bottom of the table and both will view the fixture as winnable.

The two bosses, Roberto Martinez and Mick McCarthy have been speaking to the press about the game and the need to pick up the points, lets see what they say:



Latics boss Roberto Martinez:

'I've been very impressed with Wolverhampton Wanderers this season, and the results don't reflect the work that they've done'

'Obviously last campaign was a very good one for them - they achieved the aims of the season, and they managed to keep all the good performers. They also signed a couple of players who brought something different to the team, and against Spurs and Fulham, they were very unfortunate to lose a few goals late on in the game, and that was then reflected in the score line.

'They've got a tremendous team ethic, they work really hard, and then they've got real talent up front, and they can be very energetic and do the transition between defending and attacking very quickly and hurt you.

'For us, it's now just making sure that we can help ourselves, control the game, and give the level of performance that we know we are capable of.'

'This is a new squad, but a squad that is starting to play with real togetherness and a real desire to win football games on a consistent basis.

'We are looking forward to having a home game and a game that we feel that we can really impose ourselves on, and try to please the fans.'



Wolves boss Mick McCarthy:

'I watched Wigan at Birmingham on Saturday and they are a different team to last year, away from home they were a bit more solid and workmanlike and not playing as much expansive football.

'But they can still play football but I just think that they've got a tougher side to them and a more steely edge.

'Rodallega and N'Zogbia in particular are both top players.

'N'Zogbia was booed unmercifully at Birmingham but he was a thorn in their side on Saturday.

'He's a really good player and so is Rodallega and the supposed fees of the two of them are probably right because I think they are at that level.

'Wigan are a good team with good players but I don't think there are any bad teams in the league to be honest.'

"Wigan is a big game for us.

'They're in the mix with us and in the same pot of teams who will want to take points off each other.

'Let's hope we don't end up in that same group again but the only way to do that and prove something different and get out of it is by getting results.'
