What The Bosses Said - Burnley 2 Latics 0




Latics tried to spoil the promotion party at Turf Moor on Easter Monday, unfortunately it was Burnley who were dancing at the end of the game following the win that guaranteed them Premier League football next season.

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

Latics boss Uwe Rösler - 'It's seldom that we have a performance like we've had today against Burnley.

'We've all got to take lessons from the performance include myself.

'We've got to move on to the next game quickly because it gives us the chance to get into the play-offs.

'I'll excuse the players for that performance because they have been fantastic to me and it's very, very seldom that we've played like we did in the first half today.'

'We saw improvement in the second half straight away, we made the right decisions at half time and that certainly helped us to get back into the game, but we have to also give credit and congratulations to Burnley on their promotion and the way they played this afternoon.

'We knew it was going to be a tough game, but the first 25 minutes were not good enough and we know we need to be a lot better than that if we are to achieve our goals this season.

'We spoke a little bit in the dressing room after the game and we will look at the game tomorrow at the training ground, but then we move on. '

'We're focusing on each game, Blackpool are our next opponents and they drew against Brighton today which tells you that they'll be a difficult opponent.

'Blackpool and Birmingham City have a lot to play for and we play them both so it's not going to be easy, and sometimes we've struggled against teams in the bottom half of the table so we know they will be tough games and we can't afford to make any mistakes.'



Burnley boss Sean Dyche - 'I think what we have done is historic. The challenges of the Championship are getting harder and harder because clubs that get relegated are getting richer.

'So to do it automatically is the thing that is getting harder. To do it automatically, having amassed the points we have, with a low budget, and using 22 players is incredible. I don't think those markers will be hit again. I think it is a marker in history.'

I am pleased we secured promotion against a team that I believe will be in the Prem with us next season.
