Wigan boss Rosler now focuses on promotion

Wigan Athletic boss Uwe Rosler admits he needs to pick up his players after their FA Cup shootout defeat to Arsenal.

Wigan, relegated from the top flight under former boss Roberto Martinez despite their FA Cup final success, remain very much in the hunt for promotion.

Rosler said: "I guess a lot of people will say 'now they will never recover mentally from this', but we will just use this now - last season at Brentford, we lost on automatic promotion in the 95th minute (of the final day) and the team recovered to go to the Wembley final.

"It is exactly that mental strength, that willpower and desire to get through the play-offs, that is definitely our target, that is what we are breathing, eating and sleeping, and I think that will happen."
