Ben Watson looks back at Millwall defeat and shares his thoughts on new manager Uwe Rosler.

Following yesterday’s game against Millwall at the Den, Ben Watson was left disappointed as Latics fell to a 2-1 defeat, but the midfielder remained defiant that the team can turn things around sooner rather than later.

“It’s just not falling for us at the minute,” Watson said.

“We dominated that match, it doesn’t matter which way you look at it we shouldn’t have lost that match, which makes it even more frustrating.

“Things just aren’t going our way no matter how many chances we have.”

Watson admitted there has been a change in approach over the last two games, adding:

“We’re getting closer to turning things around and we’re building on the way we’ve played in the last two games.

“The more we focus on expressing ourselves on the ball, the closer we’ll get to stringing a run of results together.”

With the announcement of Uwe Rosler as new Wigan Athletic manager ahead of yesterday’s game, Watson said the players had the chance to meet the former Brentford man and first impressions were very good.

“Things are changing now, the new gaffer’s in and I’m positive that we’ll start to turn a corner.

“We met him before the game and after the game he came in and said a few words, it was a brief meeting, but it was a positive one.”

Graham Barrow continued to lead the team from the touchline for yesterday’s match, and Watson took a moment to thank Latics’ first team coach:

“Graham has been brilliant with us.

“I’ve been with him at the club for five seasons now and since the day I met him he’s been somebody who has shared a vast knowledge of football with every player.

“I think you can see that the lads have put everything in for him over the last two games.

“Graham’s a brilliant person to have about and we would all like to thank him for stepping in whilst we didn’t have a permanent manager.”
