Fulham V Wigan manager quotes

Fulham V Wigan manager quotes

Latics boss Steve Bruce:

'We're disappointed not to win that to be honest. With 10 minutes to go and with the way we were playing I thought we might snatch it.

'But in the last week, with a win against Blackburn and a point here, we've at least given ourselves a chance and we've edged towards safety.

'I'm seeing a bit of confidence and self belief coming back into the side and, yes, we know it will be tough (to survive), but we hope to keep improving and keep picking up points.'

Fulham caretaker boss Ray Lewington:

'We were playing at home and when you do that you expect to come away with three points, so it's probably a better result for them than us.

'We were energetic and full of effort, which was pleasing, and we dominated possession and created the better chances, but then we could easily have lost the game as well.

'As for the future, my hat is in the ring to take the job on a permanent basis but that means my doing well. We've got the players here to do better and we just need to take it a game at a time.'

It was vital not to lose any points in this fixture let alone to the teams just hanging above us, it was an away fixture, we scored (differencial is vital) against the match run of play and we didn't lose for for and against and well things are looking up for us. Sunderland lost in the last miniute so the gap is closer as well
