Following yesterday`s game at Ewood Park between Blackburn Rovers and Wigan Athletic both managers spoke about the game and also about a refereeing decision that ultimately cost the Latics a share of the spoils, lets see what they said:

Latics boss Roberto Martinez:

‘I don’t know what was wrong with N’Zogbia’s goal.

‘Football is a game of contact and certainly when you come to Ewood Park there’s a physical side to the game.

‘I know the referee has got a very difficult job but that decision really cost us.

‘It was a low point for us and it was mentally hard to recover from that.

‘In the second half we started well, but two quick goals out of nothing leaves you feeling a little bit hard done by.’

Blackburn boss Sam Allardyce:

‘The relief is fantastic, certainly from my point of view.

‘We saw an edgy performance, due to the position we found ourselves in today.

‘We were subdued in possession, edgy, but we were solid defensively and two players delivered outstanding bits of football for the goals.’
