Wigan boss Bruce shrugs off Bent miss

Wigan Athletic boss Steve Bruce has shrugged off Marcus Bent's late chance to win yesterday's 1-1 draw with Tottenham.

Bent should have wrapped it up for the Latics in the second period.

But after being sent clear by Wilson Palacios, the striker crashed a drive against the crossbar on the hour.

"Who knows? If Benty had been a couple of inches lower then he could have won us the game," remarked Bruce. "It was a wonderful pass from Palacios, he (Bent) has taken it well, and you just think 'hit the target - goal'.

"But unfortunately there are fine margins, and today it wasn't our day."
