Kolo Toure proud of Wigan’s display at Millwall – South London News

Wigan Athletic manager Kolo Toure was proud of his side after they drew 1-1 against Millwall on Saturday afternoon.

Will Keane scored the opener for the Lactics before Zian Flemming got the equaliser with a superb volley just before the break.

It was Toure’s first game in charge of Wigan after getting appointed just over a week ago.

Toure said: “It was a good game, we played against a really good side. It is always tough to come to Millwall and try to get something out of the game.

“As we know, they have been winning most of their games here, and we knew it was going to be tough. I am very proud of my players – we played how we wanted to play, we created chances and we scored.

“They came back but second half we were still very dangerous and maybe we could have scored a winner, but it is a good point.

“We have only been working for eight days and the way they performed this afternoon was incredible.

“The plan that we put on, they stuck to that and they were confident on the ball, making great passes, breaking the line and stepping up on passes from the centre-backs – they all played very well.

“We had the chances to finish the game, but you have to give credit to Millwall, they are a good team.

“Defensively, they are very aggressive and quite compact as well and we just could not find that last pass.

“We will keep working on it, though, and try and be much more clinical in the box.”
