Dunn: “We Could Have Gone On And Got The Three Points.”

27 September 2015

Interim manager David Dunn was happy with yesterday’s point but felt his side could have gained all three.

Max Power gave Wigan Athletic a first half lead before Jordan Flores saw red for kicking out at Swansea City loanee Jay Fulton. 

Dominic Poleon equalised with 15 minutes of the game remaining but Latics could not manage to find the winning goal and after the game, the gaffer gave his assessment of the performance.

He said: "I thought the lads worked very hard for each other. Wigan are a good side and will be there or there abouts at the end of the season. I thought we started pretty well. 

"When they scored the goal, we were a bit off but we showed really good character in getting the equaliser. The sending off helps us but I thought at the end there was only one team who was going to win it.

“With a bit more patience more in our build up play, I think we could have gone on and got the three points today.

“In terms of the endeavour and commitment, though, I couldn’t have asked anything more from the players.”

Poleon came off the bench to score the equaliser, notching his first goal of the season.

“He looked lively when he came on,” Dunn admitted. "It gives us food for thought now ahead of Tuesday. We know he has got pace and on another day, the one at the end he could have scored another. 

"We were delighted with Dom. He made an impact and I thought all substitutes made an impact so I’m happy.”
