'If It's Football, It's Vital'

What The Bosses Said - Latics 2-0 QPR




Following the Latics 2-0 victory over QPR in the Saturday lunch time kick-off, both managers spoke to the media, let`s take a look at what they said:

Latics boss Roberto Martinez:

'We knew how difficult today's game was going to be but I felt the players approached the match in the right way and as a team we were strong and competed well'

'At times QPR played with great freedom in the final third and created a lot of problems, but overall our performance was very pleasing and that first win of the season always helps to settle the squad.

'We deserved three points today but what was important was how we earned them.

'However, we handled their freedom very well, created chances that concluded with two outstanding finishes from Franco Di Santo - a just reward for the hard work he's put in over the last three games.

'We showed patience which is very important at home; sometimes having grown in confidence throughout previous games you can go into a new game too eager to win.

'We knew it was a must-win game and that can be difficult to approach, but Franco's first goal represented what we had to be - patient and confident.'

'All the ingredients are there to make what we have the ideal platform to build upon, and there is a set of players proud to play for Wigan Athletic hungry for success.

'We always want to be better and improve, so we'll look back at games like Norwich and Swansea to understand why we didn't come away with maximum points and correct those fine points.

'There are going to be difficult phases during the season when we'll need to have as many points as possible behind us, ready to stick together and come through as a group.'


QPR boss Neil Warnock:

'I think Di Santo should buy a lottery ticket tonight, having both goals going in off deflections.

'We've had a bit of short change but I can't fault the lads, they given me everything today. It just didn't go for us.

'I'm pleased with the effort they put in today. I thought they were fantastic and I told them I couldn't ask for more. If we'd scored first we'd have won the game.'
