The Geordie was pleased to defeat Wigan Athletic at Wembley.
âEvery game is important, thatâs how it is here,â Carrick told MUTV. âWeâve had an up and down pre-season, itâs been well documented, but sometimes you canât read too much into that. We have put the work into the training field, we have all had enough games now and I think it showed today.
âIt was a better team performance all around. We looked well defensively and obviously we scored two goals, so it was a decent performance and a good day. We can move on to next week now.â
