Wigan Athletic midfielder Max Power told iFollow Latics that we must move on quickly after our first defeat of 2018 at Southend United on Saturday afternoon.
Reflecting post-match with iFollow Latics, Power said:
“There is a big sense of disappointment today; we are not used to that feeling and we will have to dust ourselves down and take it on the chin.
“Southend probably deserved to win today, they were bang up for it from the start, scored at good times and put us into a bit of a shock when we conceded.
“We weren’t at the races for the first-half but second-half was a different story; we were well in the game, got the first goal and you could only see one team going on and scoring the goals but against the run of play they get the third and kill the game.
“Credit to them, but as a team we win together and lose together so we will put it to bed and move on quickly.
“We have just had a really good unbeaten run,” he continued. “The last time we lost was in the league against Bradford and we went on this run so that’s what we will look to do again, starting Tuesday.
“We won’t get too down about this game like we won’t get too high when we win games. It is important to keep a balance, there are 17 games left now and we will take each game as it comes.
“We have got Blackpool on Tuesday and that will give us a chance to put things right.”
The conditions were far from conducive to Latics’ passing football, but Power didn’t want to make excuses.
“The pitch was tough but you can’t use that as an excuse,” he added. “Both teams play on it, Southend played it better than us, they got balls forward quickly, put us under pressure and got the goals at crucial times.”
