💬 Gary Caldwell on City's FA Cup exit

4 November 2023

Gary Caldwell was left with a sense of deja vu as his City squandered a number of chances, losing 2-0 at home to Wigan Athletic in the FA Cup first round.

In a game that mirrored the league encounter a fortnight ago, City dominated the stats sheet, but were once again punished for their lack of clincality in front of goal as Thelo Aasgaard and Steven Sessegnon scored second half goals.

"We changed how we played from the last time to try and get an extra man higher up the pitch," Gary said.

"But if you don't score goals you don't win and that's pretty simple. First goal was poor, second goal was a great strike but we didn't get it out to prevent it."

"The stats tell the story. You have to put the ball in net. We know what we need to do and we have to keep working hard to come back stronger in those moments.

"Our run is not good enough and I have said that to the players as well. We al have to better, myself included as the manager. It is obvious what needs to get better and we have to stick together, and keeop believing in what we are doing."
