Johnson praises fightback
"You saw when Jose scored, they were all really keen to say 'that was for you, Bouzy.'"
Lee Johnson has praised the way his players fought back to earn a valuable home point against Colchester on Monday after goalkeeper Dean Bouzanis spilled the ball to gift the visitors the opening goal in the first half. The equaliser came with a strong header from Jose Baxter and the point was enough to hoist the Latics out of the relegation zone. The new boss commented, “Poor Bouzy was distraught and there is no doubt it was a bad error. You saw when Jose scored, they were all really keen to say ‘that was for you, Bouzy.’ It is good, as it shows team spirit. I don’t think it was the pitch, I think it was a momentary lapse in concentration. It happens with goalkeepers. The important thing was that everyone looked after him and they did.” “There are big games to come and we have to keep chipping away. We are up for it and looking forward to the fight. No doubt Matt Smith will be a big player for us and I expect him to be in the fray for Saturday’s game.”
