Wellens discusses Wigan defeat

12 September 2021

Richie Wellens spoke to the media after Rovers were beaten by Wigan Athletic in Sky Bet League One.

Tommy Rowe’s opener was cancelled out by a double from Will Keane to secure a 2-1 win for the Latics.

On his team’s performance:

“We arrived with a game plan and tried to frustrate them when they had the ball.

“I felt we’d done that well and went 1-0 up, but then they scored from a free-kick which I felt shouldn’t have been one.

“We probably didn’t do enough to get back in it after going 2-1 down, but we were asking players to do more minutes than they were ready for.”

On having a full week to work ahead of the next league game:

“We’ve worked on a little bit but we had Galbraith and Dahlberg joining us late in the week, we’ve got a full week now to prepare for Morecambe.

“The players understand where we’re at and I’m proud of them for continuing to plug away.

“We could have easily lost confidence after the second goal and let it go to three or four but we didn’t do that.”
