'If It's Football, It's Vital'

OGS Rues Missed Opportunities

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was left to rue our wasted opportunities in today's FA Cup defeat to the holders Wigan Athletic.

The fifth round match ended two one at full time, with all the goals coming in the first half. Wigan took the early lead inside of the 20 minute mark, and we equalised shortly after, but they got their noses back in front before the half time break and unfortunately for us, that was the end of the goalscoring.

The most disappointing thing for Ole as he spoke to the Official Site was we had 20 odd chances during the game and we had far more on target than our opponents but we just didn't make them count on the day, despite dominating possession.

'I always try to see the positive in a defeat, although today it's not that easy as we thought we had a chance to go the whole way in the FA Cup, a great competition. We're all disappointed, but although we created some good chances, we didn't take enough of them and that's why we're not in the hat for the next round.'

As for the goals against, Ole admits the first one from our point of view was very poor, we gave away a needless foul when the ball should've just been cleared without a second thought, and then we failed to pick up people in the box and were made to pay for it. He does however say the second goal from Watson was a 'wonder strike' and there's very little you can do against those in reality and you just have to them on the chin.

We did however have more than enough chances to have altered the score line but we didn't take them. So we have to accept we are out of the Cup and now make less fixtures count by getting results in the league.

Solskjaer ends the interview by saying it was frustrating, but he can't fault the effort of the lads and it was just one of those games where you do look back and think what if when it comes to the chances you had.
