John Sheridan is looking forward to his next game after the point gained at Carlisle last Saturday. Sheridan feels that the team have turned the corner after a disasterous run which saw them lose four consecutive games and fall from table toppers to fifth in the league.

Disappointed with the late goal which robbed the Latics of another two valuable points, the upbeat manager enthused, "I'm not disappointed with the performance against a team that are good at home but we should have been going home with all three points. Now we've got to concentrate only on Doncaster, and I'm not even looking at other results. If we pick up three points another five or six times this season then we should be in the play-offs."

"We always knew Chris (Taylor) would try to run out of the ground when he scored. It was a silly booking, but I'm pleased he scored as he's had a decent season. I also thought that Leon Clarke did very well for his first game, showing a good touch and decent awareness. Certain people are in the comfort zone and I want to bring more people in to test them. I'm still working hard because we need fresh people to give us a boost. I don't have enough players to swap and change. It's up to me to be strong, and if I need to make decisions and leave people out then I'm going to have to do that."
