The Latics fell to a too familiar loss, this time a 1-0 defeat at Brentford, due to yet another defensive error. An obviously disappointed Paul Dickov spoke philosophically when he commented, "We have to take a lot of heart from the performance as they were on their heels at the end. And with a bit of luck we would have nicked a point which is the least I thought we deserved. Their keeper made an unbelievable save at the end from Matt Smith and, on another day, it would have gone in. I have told the players to stay positive because, if we continue to play like that, we will soon start to pick up points. We have got to believe we are doing the right thing.” "You cannot legislate sometimes for decision making on the pitch. Jean Yves M’voto had all the time in the world to pass it, but sliced it straight to one of their players. Sometimes you get away with it, but we aren’t at the moment. We are not getting the breaks." The disappointing result means that next Saturdays game against struggling Coventry City will become even more significant as both teams will be fighting for the points for the same reason - to get away from the bottom of the pack!
