Wigan performance leaves Wallace frustrated

24 February 2020

Millwall defender Murray Wallace admits the players 'didn't get it right' on Saturday upon reflecting on the Wigan Athletic defeat.

On a disappointing afternoon in Greater Manchester, The Lions fell to a loss against a Wigan Athletic side battling for survival at the foot of the table, after a Shaun Hutchinson own goal in the second-half. 

Wallace came close to drawing the scores level in the latter stages of the game. The ball fell kindly to the defender 25 yards out which he struck sweetly, and it came agonisingly close to finding the top corner. 

Millwall continued to press as Mason Bennett was introduced for his Lions debut, but it proved too little too late as Gary Rowett's side fell to defeat. 

Looking back on the result, Wallace is expecting the squad as a whole to bounce back against Birmingham City after not producing their best on Saturday. 

"There was too many of us who just weren't fully at it," he said. "Sometimes you can get away with it if it's one or two but as a team we just weren't at it today.

"I think at times we didn't get our press right, our shape was a little bit disjointed, they did seem to get in quite a lot. We just didn't get it right.

"Regardless of where we are in the League, after any defeat you want to bounce back quickly. We're quite fortunate we've got the game midweek because you never want to sit and linger on a loss too long.

"We need to get our heads back down and get back to what we are good at and see where that takes us."
