Martinez: We Deserved Something vs Swansea

Wigan Athletic manager Roberto Martinez felt his side deserved something from yesterday's game as they lost 2-1 against his former club Swansea City.

The Swans went into a 2-0 lead midway through the second half, but Wigan pushed for an equaliser after Boyce got a quick goal back for the visitors. Martinez also thought they should have had an equaliser after having a goal ruled out for offside.

'I think we deserved something, it was the game we all expected in terms of the manner of both teams and the concepts we share.

'We saw a real fight for possession and who would control the game and I thought we did that better than Swansea in the first half. We created better chances and restricted Swansea really well.

'But in these games you need that sharpness in the final third and probably we missed that today.'


Swansea City were relieved to win their first game in six, while Wigan Athletic now haven't won in their last six.
