'If It's Football, It's Vital'

What the bosses said

Yesterdays game at Pride Park between Derby County and Wigan Athletic didn`t set the footballing world on fire but it was mighty significant to both these clubs.

Latics continue to be the form team of the clubs in the bottom half of the table and look to be clawing their way out of trouble, whilst Derby look dead and buried.

Both Steve Bruce and Paul Jewell had their thoughts on the game, lets take a look at what they had to say:

Latics boss Steve Bruce:

'By half-time we should have been out of sight. We had two or three great opportunities.

'The second half was a dull affair. We were perhaps better against 10 men, but then Sibierski came up with the goal.

'Paul Jewell reshuffled things after the sending-off and made it difficult for us. Our real chances were in the first half.'

'We've steadied the ship and turned it around slowly but we've not done anything yet.'

'We have given ourselves a chance and we are the form team at the bottom. We must make sure that we maintain that.'

Derby boss Paul Jewell:

'It looked like one goal was going to decide it - and I could never see us scoring.

'We tried manfully but we're not bottom because we're unlucky. It's because we're not good enough, and that's a fact.

'We've got to be bigger and stronger, and the players who are here have got to be better.'
