Ali Al-Habsi Speaks About A Good Point


Wigan Athletic and Oman international goal keeper Ali Al-Habsi says the 2-2 draw with Stoke at the weekend was a very tough game and that gaining a point isn`t a bad result.

The Latics came from behind twice and it was a battling performance that pleased Al-Habsi, he says that it was very important not to lose the game and it was pleasing to score two goals in a game for the first time in a while

Speaking to Latics Player Al-Habsi said: "It was a very tough game against Stoke with the way they play, they are really strong up front and with their set pieces, in the end one point isn`t that bad"

"It was important for us to come back and not lose the game, very happy with the performance though today"

"It was good to come back from being a goal down but also it was important that we scored two goals because it is a long time since we scored two."


Al-Habsi made a wonderful save in the second half, diving low to his left he kept out a powerful Kenwyne Jones header that kept the scores level and went a long way to earning the Latics a point.

The save was so good that Sky Sports made it their `Save of the Weekend`, funnily enough it didn`t get a mention on the BBC.

Speaking about the save Al-Habsi was very modest, he said: "I was just doing made job but it was important so that the scores would stay level"

Nice one Ali, keep up the good form
