Following yesterdays game at Upton Park that ended West Ham 3-1 Latics both bosses spoke to the press, lets see what they had to say for themselves:
Latics boss Roberto Martinez:
‘We conceded three very cheap goals for our standards, and that is something we will work on’
‘We had a few players missing, but that is not an excuse. You got the feeling nothing was going our way.
‘There was a good opportunity to get back into the game with the penalty, and then even at the end we got a good goal ruled out. It is quite clear to me the things we need to work on, but I was pleased with the reaction towards the end.
‘It was a day of a real test of character, and that was there, but in football you cannot concede cheap goals, otherwise you are making things very difficult. We just weren’t ourselves today, and that is where the work is going to be.’

West Ham boss Avram Grant:
‘It was a good win and a convincing victory, I am happy for us and hope it is only the beginning,’
‘We played like we have all of the other games, but were more efficient. We won, this is the difference and this is the name of the game.
‘We started a bit nervous, which you can understand from our position in the league and the last game at Liverpool.
‘But the players always tried to do the right thing, were fighting and they have responded. We are trying to build a good mentality, which is important.’
‘We have played only 15 games, so at the moment it does not really matter if Wolves win or the others do – we need to do our job
‘When you come to the last few games, it is important, but now the teams who are in the top 10 can be in the bottom.’
