Bent reveals Wigan crisis talks

Striker Marcus Bent has revealed the Wigan players have been taking on board constructive criticism as they look to turn around their form.

Bent twice put his side in front at Birmingham on Saturday but the home side hit back to claim a 3-2 win, which led to some open talking on the journey home.

"We had a chat after the Birmingham game and on the way home on the coach - sometimes it needs that.

"People have to be told what they are doing wrong so that they can put it right. It's not done in a bad way - it is trying to help people get on with their job and do it better.

"We are trying to help each other out. We all want to get back on the right track and back to where we were earlier in the season. At the moment, we are on a little bit of a slump.

"But we're not worried too much because we have potential in the squad and we are very much together as a squad. We can put this right and I believe it will come." Bent told the Wigan Evening Post.
