Manager Frankie Bunn was not pleased when his side eeked to a 1-1 draw at Forest Green on Saturday. He expected more after a poor first half performance which could have seen the Latics 3-0 down at half time. His young charges did pick up the pace in the second half and earned a penalty after Jose Baxter was fouled.
Bunn commented, “I think they've made a couple of errors today but, they kept going and they never gave in which was terrific, they showed a lot spirit. They hung in through the bad times and got a little bit of luck in the oppositions third and the keepers pulled off some good saves. We weren't cohesive, and we never really had an effort on goal, so in terms of performance very disappointed with the first half but at least we had a go second half. Peter Clarke is struggling with a sore knee, Ishmael and Sam Surridge haven't trained since last Saturday with tight hamstrings. Unbelievable support again and I'd just like to thank them once again, it was terrific support and again the fans kept us with throughout.”
