Wesolowski: "Devastated We Didn't Win"

3 March 2014

Latics midfielder James Wesolowski was disappointed not to get all three points from Saturday's game with Tranmere Rovers.

The Australian, who opened the scoring for Latics in the game, was frustrated not to hold on to the lead but admitted it was a much more impressive display.

Speaking to Latics Player, he said: "It's not a bad point but we're devastated not to get three. I think that's the best we've played in a couple of weeks now. With Korey coming back into the team and Philliskirk in the hole, it helped us play nicer football. I'm just disappointed we didn't get the three points in the end because I thought we deserved it.

"It was nice to get the ball on the deck and play football. We had a solid base up front with Philliskirk and MacDonald and I thought they did really well. Hopefully we can push on from this performance into the next game."

Wesolowski struck his fourth goal of the season, thundering his shot past Owain Fon Williams to give Latics the lead and the midfielder was happy to get on the scoresheet. 

"I want to get five this season and that's one closer to that target," admitted the former Peterborough man. "I've got four at the moment so hopefully I can get that and push on from there."

Latics now host back-to-back home games against two of the side's chasing promotion out of League One and the 26-year-old has set his targets for those games.

"We're aiming for four point from the two games. Every team in this division on their day can either be good or poor, which includes us, but we need to go out and make sure we perform. When we do perform, I'm sure we can challenge both those sides," said Wesolowski.
