Speaking after the game, Balogun was yellow-carded and got a rating of 6.8%, said his side the result is tough to take before he added that their performance was not good enough.


“Tough one to take. Might not have been the best performance, but I felt like we gave it our all. Just gotta admit that today’s ‘all’ wasn’t enough to get the result everybody wanted.”


“We’ll shake it off and make sure we’re ready to go hard again on Wednesday at the DW,” he said.


Wigan are currently 14th on the league standings with 58 points after 44 matches.
