Moore: We will learn from Wigan lesson

DARREN Moore believes Albion need to learn to overcome the hurdles they faced at the DW Stadium against Wigan Athletic.

The Baggies, whose seven-game unbeaten run in the Sky Bet Championship came to end on Saturday afternoon, fell to Josh Windass’ solitary strike late on.

Moore’s men were stifled by an energetic and gritty Latics side who haven’t tasted a home defeat since mid-February, a run stretching back 14 games.

And the boss says his team must use the lessons learned.

“It was a difficult game today, Wigan made it very hard for us.

“They competed for every ball and hustled us when we had possession.

“These are the hurdles that you are going to come up against in the Championship and our players need to learn very quickly.

“It was a tight game and there wasn’t much in it. The vital chance fell to them and the boy put it away well.

“It was then an uphill task trying to break the ten men down.

“I take nothing away from Wigan. They came out with an excellent game-plan and they worked hard for their victory.

“We will analyse and move on quickly for Wednesday.

“The way this division presents itself, if you’re winning games then you get another game quickly to keep the momentum going and if you’ve lost, you get a chance to turn it around quickly.”
