What The Bosses Said - Doncaster 3 Latics 0




Latics went to Doncaster yesterday looking to get into a play-off spot and came away with their tail firmly between their legs, these things happen in football, just when you are on the crest of a wave, splash, you end up soaking wet.

The true lesson from the game at the Keepmoat as far as the Latics are concerned is how we will react, it is important not to get carried away when in good form and just as important not to get carried away when there is a blip, still a long way to go and still every possibility of a play-off spot come the end of the season.

Anyhow that's my thoughts on yesterday's outcome, but let's take a look at the bosses view points:

Latics boss Uwe Rosler - 'We didn't start the game well and conceded a poor opening goal. After that we created some good chances but unfortunately we couldn't take them.

'Perhaps the schedule we've had to come through caught up with us because we didn't have the power or energy to get ourselves back into the game.

'It came to a point in the game where we seemed to have given up, and that's not like us nor is it acceptable when you see how many supporters have made the journey to support us.

'We never really got the ball down or had enough penetration to hurt them. All credit to Doncaster - they deserved to win.

'It's how we bounce back now that's important and I'm looking forward to seeing a reaction from my players because collectively we were not at the races today.'

'But we have to move on now, we've got a week to prepare for our cup-game against Crystal Palace and we don't want this to have a lasting effect on us.

'There are a lot of things we need to do on the training pitch, but at the same time we need to make sure we use the time to freshen up at the same time.'


Doncaster boss Paul Dickov - 'I'm delighted with the result, and the performance, and keeping a clean sheet.

'We've shown exactly what we are capable of today. There are 20 games left and we have to perform like that in every one.
'If we do, we won't have any problem at all staying out of the bottom three.

'Chris Brown was magnificent and deservedly scored a couple of goals, but he flogs himself to death every game and we need to bring someone in to help him out.

'James Coppinger's just come back from injury and I thought he was outstanding. When he plays like that he's as good as anything in the league.
'But the most important thing was we were outstanding as a team and, when we play like that, we can match anyone.'
