‘Better next week’: Wigan’s Caldwell says wins not far off after fourth straight draw

Wigan manager Gary Caldwell says it is time for his side to turn their dominance in games into wins but was again proud of his team’s never-say-die attitude.

Latics drew their fourth game in a row on Saturday after another scintillating comeback from 2-0 down against Bury and were the better side throughout.

The high flying Shakers were looking for a seventh league win on the bounce but it was Wigan who took the game to the home side and probably did enough to have won the contest.

Latics enjoyed 58% of the possession at Gigg Lane and had 18 shots in comparison to the six the hosts had.

“I’m disappointed not to win again, as are the players and the staff, because it is a game we should have won,” Caldwell told the club website.

“The last four games we have drawn and I firmly believe we should have won all four and today was no different.

“There were opportunities to win it but it wasn’t to be, we move on, work hard this week and we will be better next week.”

Next up for Latics are very winnable games at home to Colchester and then away to Peterborough and although the manager knows that although certain tweaks need to be made, wins are just around the corner.

“I know a lot about the character of the group, that’s there in abundance, they never know that they’re beat, but we need to be more ruthless in both boxes.”

“I am very proud of the players again for their effort, their energy and their character because that is not in question, we just need to keep working, brush up on a few things and we will start winning games quickly.”
