Black's View: Wigan

Last updated : 02 January 2006 By Brian Cartlidge

Black said: "This was a massive result for us. There is no reason we cannot escape from the relegation area.

"Now we have Charlton and Portsmouth coming up and if we can get a repeat of the Wigan performance there is no reason why we shouldn't climb the table.

"But it is all about results and performances and everyone is focussed on getting us out of the position we are in at the moment.

"It was vital to take something from the game. The response of the players was fabulous under difficult conditions.

"Jermaine Pennant was excellent and fantastic. He glides past people as if they are not there and it was a top performance from a wide man."
