What The Bosses Said - Latics 2-2 QPR

What The Bosses Said - Latics 2-2 QPR



The Latics drew 2-2 with QPR on Saturday, though in fairness if we'd have ran out 4-2 winners there would have been no complaints

We had numerous chances, Jordi Gomez hit the bar and Rob Green in the QPR goal pulled off a few great saves, following the game both managers reflected on match when speaking to the media, let's take a look at what they had to say:

Latics boss Roberto Martinez:

'We're disappointed with the two goals conceded; in any games if you gift two goals like that it's going to be very difficult to take three points.

'But having said that I couldn't be more proud of the efforts of the team and the manner in which we coped with QPR`s threat; limiting them to very little.

'The first chance they got they scored from, after a set-piece and a free header for Ryan Nelsen, and in the second-half it was a similar story with a rare break forward leading to Djibril Cisse scoring.

'At times teams seem to find it too easy to score against us and it's an area we need to improve in, but you look then at the character shown by the players was quite impressive.

'We started the second-half by creating chances and opening up their defence on numerous occasions and I think if we had of taken the lead at that point it would be a very different result at the final whistle.

'The reaction to going 2-1 down highlights what we have in the dressing room and the determination of the players to succeed. We have a real fighting spirit right now and it doesn't matter if we have seven players missing or not, these players are ready to react and give everything for Wigan Athletic, which is something we should all be proud of and keep encouraging.

'I don't look at the table in December, but the truth is that we need to start taking responsibility in certain aspects to get three points when we deserve them.

'But when the see the attitude and quality of the players I'm confident that will come and it will be another exciting journey for the club.'



QPR boss Harry Redknapp

'They got on top in the second half, we scored against the run of play and then you're hoping with 20 minutes to go you can hang on.

'We didn't defend very well really, we were slow getting around the ball. We started well and for 20 minutes I thought we kept the ball great.

'Then they get a corner, we don't do what we're supposed to do, the ball gets cleared to the edge of the box, the man on the edge of the box stands there picking his nose, they rifle a shot in and we're one down.
