What The Bosses Said - Latics 2 Blackburn 1

What The Bosses Said - Latics 2 Blackburn 1




Latics beat Blackburn Rovers at the death on Sunday with Emmerson Boyce's thundering header, but there was a lot more than just a late goal to talk about, Blackburn defender Grant Hanley receiving a red card on 37 minutes for starters. There was also the dominance of the Latics and numerous chances that fell our way

After the game both bosses spoke to the media, let's take a look at what they had to say:

Latics boss Owen Coyle:

'We've got to understand the demands that have been put on this group since the last international break in a short space of time.

'We've got to show we've got more than one way to win a game; Thursday night against Maribor was silky and incisive, and today was much more about heart and guts if truth be told.

'The players carried the fight for Wigan Athletic and were determined to show they won't be defeated in their own back yard against a team on the back of a terrific run in the league.

'Having said that, I thought Scott Carson was fouled in the build-up to the Blackburn goal, but that wasn't seen and it gave Blackburn something extra to hold onto.

'The red card was obvious, and a turning point in the game as it allowed us to produce wave after wave of attack. We had to be patient in waiting to break them down, and the two goals we scored could have been five or six, without getting to the heights we know we're capable of.

'At the end of the day every player stuck to their task, we made some good substitutions to help the team during the game, two of the players grabbing the goals and Emmerson Boyce being the match-winner.

'I said to Boycey in the dressing room after the game that he's a credit to himself and the football club. I was trying to protect him after his efforts for the team in recent weeks, but the energy he showed when he came on was inspirational and helped us claim three great points.'

'There's so much to be excited about this season, and if the players continue to show the courage and conviction they did today it should be a successful one.'


Blackburn boss Gary Bowyer:

'I didn't know what he got sent off for and as he came off I asked him what he did. I have to be honest I didn't understand him with the answer he gave me so I need to go and see it.

'It changed the course of the game because up until then we were very comfortable. We were pleased with how we were playing and we're disappointed to be leaving here without taking something from the game.

'Once the referee makes the decision there's an hour to play and our lads were magnificent.'
