What The Boss Said - Sheff Weds v Latics

What The Boss Said - Sheff Weds v Latics




Latics travelled to Hillsborough last night and set about the task of claiming the three points, unfortunately a deluge of rain cut short any celebrations from Uwe Rosler's team, leading by a goal to nil and very much on top, referee Keith Stroud brought an end to proceedings on 61 minutes

A clearly frustrated but equally philosophical Uwe Rosler had no complaints with the referees decision, speaking to Latics official website he said - 'I told you things would never be dull under me'

'Firstly I thought the officials did very well tonight in very difficult conditions. The decision was harsh on us because we were winning, but it was the right one. He came over to the dug outs in the second half and told us that he would play a few more minutes and see how the conditions developed before making a decision, and he could only make one in the end.'
'At times they were a joy to watch in how the passed the ball around and created so many chances against a team who are on the up after victories against some of the division's big sides and have good momentum behind them.

'The way the game was progressing I felt we would have had more counter-attack opportunities and would have introduced players from the bench to exploit the room beyond the defence.'
