Wigan boss Hutchings: Lampard making difference at Chelsea

Wigan Athletic boss Chris Hutchings was full of praise for Frank Lampard after the Chelsea midfielder's performance in Saturday's 2-0 win.

"We tried to match them in midfield but obviously it didn't happen for us," he said after watching his struggling team slump to a sixth consecutive defeat.

"We'd talked in the week about Frank Lampard getting into the box and getting goals week in, week out as he does.

"And, lo and behold, he does it again.

"You're unhappy with the defence whenever you concede goals but it was a great finish from Frank.

"For their second goal, the full-back (Belletti) picks it up and runs 40 or 50 yards to score. We had a mountain to climb in the second half but we took it to them well."
