Defender George Edmundson is relishing this Saturday’s derby with local rivals Bury as Latics look to bounce back from Tuesday’s defeat to Rochdale.
Edmundson believes the side didn’t get the rub of the green from the officials’ midweek, but he says the side have moved on and are all focused for the test that lies ahead.
“I don't think the officials helped us on Tuesday, I thought the decisions they give were poor.” He said.
“It happens in games, so we've just got to get on with it and move onto the next one.”
Focus switches back to the league as Latics look to extend their five-game unbeaten run in the competition which has seen Frankie Bunn’s men slowly climb the table.
Edmundson is looking forward to concentrating on the bread and butter of the league format over this busy Christmas period.
“It doesn't sound great, but we can concentrate on the league now.” He commented.
“Obviously, you want to win every game, but these things happen you're going to lose games and it's just how you bounce back from that.”
Bury are currently flying high in the Sky Bet League Two table and have earned raving reviews for some of their performances across the season.
However, Edmundson is confident the side can pick up the three points in what might be another feisty encounter at Boundary Park.
“I'm expecting three points which is what we expect every game.
“It's a home game so hopefully the crowd can get behind us, it'll be a tough, they're a team in form, but we'll be playing for the three points.
“It'll be a feisty game, a bit like Rochdale, but we're all up for it and preparing through the week ready for the game Saturday.”
