Kirkland wants to keep momentum

Hugo Rodallega’s 35th minute goal at the DW stadium on Monday
earned the Latics a historic win against the Reds and a four-point
advantage over the relegation zone. Wigan are now preparing for
Saturday’s vital trip to fellow strugglers Bolton and goalkeeper
Kirkland is eager to maintain momentum. “We’re still in a tough
position, but the win against Liverpool gives us a little bit of
breathing space and we have to push on now,” he told the Evening
Post. “The lads were magnificent from the first minute until the
last, and frustrated Liverpool for the whole game. “It didn’t
matter who we were playing, we just had to get a positive result
and thankfully we managed to do that. “Now the challenge is to take
this in to Saturday’s game at Bolton, which is another massive one
for us. “Obviously they are down around us in the table, but there
are no easy games and we’ll need to play as well as we did against
Liverpool to win.”
