What The Bosses Say - Latics v Bolton

What The Bosses Say - Latics v Bolton


Wigan Athletic play Bolton Wanderers this Saturday at the DW Stadium in what is one of the most local of local derbies in the Premier League with the grounds just 6 miles apart, both sides have had a decent run of late and just two points separate the clubs in the league table.

In the build up to the game both managers have spoken to the press about the game and what they expect from it, let`s take a look at what they had to say:

Latics boss Roberto Martinez:

'The biggest strength Bolton possess is that stability they've worked hard for.

'You're looking at some key players in that squad who help maintain that; Kevin Davies, Johan Elmander who is bringing a new personal performance to Bolton this season, Lee Young-Cho who continues to be an influential player and players like Fabrice Muamba and Gary Cahill who bring even more strength to the team.

'In Kevin Davies particularly we know we face a physical challenge. He is probably in the best phase in his career having just earned his first England cap and has plenty of confidence in his game.

'So they have a strong team ethic and have been playing together for a long time perfecting what they do best.

'They are a difficult side to play against because they can bring anything to the game, and that's where we have to be aware and the challenge we face.'



Bolton boss Owen Coyle

'We know Wigan are going to be dangerous'

'It was clear to see how dangerous they are going forward from just looking at the two goals from Charles N'Zogbia last weekend.

'But we're going there to get a result and we'll be confident, as we have been going into every game this season.'

We need to be strong defending at set pieces/corners/free kicks. That's when they are dangerous. Compete in midfield and we will knick this one. Close affair with a Gomez long range effort winning it!
