Central defender praises Town performance but admits that Blues have to start taking points to go alongside their performance

Tommy Smith was pleased with the performance Town showed this afternoon, but admits it counts for nothing if you don’t take anything from the game.

The Blues outplayed Wigan for the majority of the game, missing a whole host of chances, but left the DW Stadium with nothing to show as a goal in each half from Ryan Shotton and Nick Powell saw the Latics take all three points.

“Obviously we are really disappointed to have lost the game and we had the chances to win a couple of games today,” the New Zealand international told the Club website.

“We’ve conceded two sloppy goals which is poor on our part but aside from that we’ve dominated the game and should have at least got a point, if not all three.

“Wigan will be one of the favourites for promotion, along with Reading and QPR, and we’ve matched all three teams. However it’s no good matching teams if you don’t come away with something from the game.

“That’s something we need to address but the confidence is still high in the dressing-room because our performance was very good. We just need to cut out the sloppy goals and be more ruthless in the final third.”
