Wilson: "The Fans Were Terrific"

6 October 2014

Latics' full-back Brian Wilson described Saturday's draw with Peterborough United as a 'terrific point'.

Signed in the summer, the 31-year-old has settled well into life at the football club and has put in some impressive displays, making the right-back position his own.

Wilson, who joined the club from Colchester United, admitted the side were not at their best but managed to grind out a result.

He said: "It was a terrific point and we remain eight games unbeaten so that's a positive. We were a bit sloppy second half; we dropped too deep and gave them too much respect but if you would have offered a point before the game we would have snapped your hand off.

"We started bright and scored a great goal in the opening couple of minutes but we gave away two goals which we should have done better with it. We tired a bit second half but it was a terrific point."

The defender praised the attitude of his fellow teammates and reserved a special mention to the supporters. "We have got some great characters in the squad and the team spirit is there for people to see. 

"The fans were terrific, coming down to support us so we can only get stronger and stronger," commented Wilson.

Barnsley are the visitors to Park tomorrow for the Johnstone's Paint Trophy tie and the defender harbours ambitions of getting far in the competition. 

"I've never been to Wembley and I'm sure a lot of the lads haven't either so it will be great to get a win in the competition," the full-back admitted.
