- Morsy on Sunday’s game with Norwich City: “Last season we beat Bournemouth, West Ham and probably the best team in Europe at home; we can beat anyone at home and we have to believe that and if we can get a win, it would be one hell of a result.”
Wigan Athletic captain Samy Morsy couldn’t hide his disappointment as Latics surrendered the lead to lose 2-1 at Hull City on Wednesday night.
Reflecting post-match with iFollow Latics after Jordy de Wijs won all three points for the hosts in the 89th minute, Morsy said:
“It is two goals which could have been avoided again and that has been the disappointment of the last two games; we could easily have had six points and been out of the situation we are in.
“Unfortunately, it wasn’t to be and they were poor goals to concede from our point of view. We have to come together now.
“We have scored the opening goal in a lot of away games and I guess the fortunate thing for us is that we have got three home games and we have been pretty good at home all season.
“It is disappointing because we should have hung on for at least a point.
“It is individual errors and it happens, it’s football, it is life, we all make them. We certainly won’t be blaming anybody – it might be the case next week that it happens for us, we have to move on.
“We have to get ourselves straight; we know the battle we are in with a few teams around us and we know what is at stake – we have to fight to the death.”
Latics face league leaders Norwich City at the DW Stadium on Sunday and the Egypt international highlighted the importance of his side’s form at the DW.
“Last season we beat Bournemouth, West Ham and probably the best team in Europe at home; we can beat anyone at home and we have to believe that.
“If we can get a win, it would be one hell of a result,
“I think the supporters know we are an honest set of lads and it’s disappointing tonight, because we would have loved to have given them a win.”
