What The Bosses Said - Bolton 1 Latics 1

What The Bosses Said - Bolton 1 Latics 1




An exciting derby game at the Reebok ended with late drama, Bolton had taken a first half lead with a goal from loan striker Lukas Jutkiewcz, the Middlesbrough man was somehow awarded a free kick after he had fouled Leon Barnett, to add insult to injury Jutkiewcz then managed to get a toe on the ball to steer past Al Habsi from what looked like an offside position.

In the second half Barnett and Jutkiewcz clashed again with the striker going down in a heap after the two players had a coming together, Bolton players and management screamed for a red card for Barnett, which wasn't shown, Nick Powell equalised with a goal at the end of a great move with two minutes on the clock, then, with virtually the last kick of the game the Latics were awarded a penalty after Baptiste had upended Callum McManaman in teh area, unfortunately Bogdan in the Bolton goal made a very good save and a 1-1 draw was the outcome.

Following the match both managers spoke to the media, let's take a look at what they had to say:

Latics boss Uwe Rösler - 'I don't really know whether I should be happy or whether I should be disappointed.

'I'm disappointed with the performance because we had top players out there, international players, and we weren't at the races. We were not ready for a derby game with that intensity.

'On the other hand I'm happy with the way we changed our game in the second half and with the way our substitutions helped us to get into a position whereby we could have won in the last minute of the game.

'It was a fantastic progression throughout the 90 minutes and the subs really helped us.

'Unfortunately we couldn't convert the penalty, but there is nobody to be blamed because that can happen in football.'

'We put a lot of pressure on Bolton at the end and that is a big contrast from my first game back in December.

'We were under the cosh for 45 minutes at the DW Stadium, but three months later on the road we did completely the opposite.

'We made sure that we pushed and pushed in the final moments to try and win the game. The spirit was good and the fitness was good, so next time we will win.'



Bolton boss Dougie Freedman - : 'I don't like criticising referees and I thought he had a good match today but I was very, very disappointed by the decision he made.

'It was a decision which gave them that little bit of hope to get back in the game in the end.

'It's a difficult match for referees and I'm not one to criticise them because I know how difficult their job is, but I just can't get my head around the decision.

'He's through on goal and it's just a very poor decision. On the replay it's even worse.

'It's a huge turning point in the game and I think we had the opportunity to go 2-0 up. It's been a challenging time for us but these players put in a huge effort and we should be proud of that.'

I really like Uwe Rosler. I like what he says, and feel he's not spinning a line, just being honest, but without hanging his heart on his sleeve.

He's good on the ball, great touch, he was man of the match away at QPR last week, which was he best game for us, good enough to play regularly for a honours chasing top European club? doubt it but wouldn't mind us signing him on a permanent deal

The action(?) from yesterday's game at the DW Stadium between Wigan Athletic and Nottingham Forest which ended goalless:

Report - Latics 0 Forest 0 - What A Shocker

Thirteen games to save our Championship status, first up a home game against Nottingham Forest who are on a shocking run of form, conceded 10 goals in their last three matches, three of their first choice defenders missing through injury, they had lost 11 of their 16 away games this season with a -16 goal difference on the road and sat just six points above us in the table, surely a game that we would set out to win.

Checking the team selection I felt slightly optimistic but slightly conf
