Wigan Athletic manager Paul Cook has admitted massive disappointment after his team were humbled by a 4-0 scoreline on the road to Preston North End. The Latics had a comfortable beginning on their Championship return which saw them 17 points from their opening 11 matches but they could not match up to the challenge offered from Preston.
Wigan Athletic manager Paul Cook remains determined to seal the League One title next week after being held to a 1-1 draw by AFC Wimbledon in the penultimate game of the season. The Latics had the opportunity to lift the title after second-placed Blackburn Rovers succumbed to an away defeat to Charlton Athletic, but it wasn’t to be.
Speaking after the game, he said:”I can’t grumble, we didn’t play well in the first half. It’s tough these days, you get over the line and promoted and there’s a sense of achievement, but there’s so much more to play for. We created numerous chances and the keeper made a couple of great saves, any other day we would have won the game. We can have a good rest this week and put everything into our preparations to make sure we finish the season with a smile.” (more…)
Wigan Athletic manager Paul Cook believes his side have lost a little bit of their mojo after conceding three goals during their recent League One draw against Scunthorpe United. The Latics took the lead on two occasions during the first-half through Chey Dunkley and Will Grigg, but they were pegged back by a Tom Hopper brace prior to the break.
