Wigan Athletic manager Uwe Rosler believes his players deserved their 2-1 win over Watford.

Rosler's side, who have an FA Cup semi-final with Arsenal to come next month, were the better side against the Hornets and had several excellent chances in both halves.

Rosler said: "We had the majority of the possession and far more attempts on goal.

"Even before they scored, we had three massive chances - two of them one-against-one.

"I felt we were very unfortunate to go a goal down, but we had to sort out one of two things defensively.

"We did that in the second half and, apart from the last ten minutes when they changed their shape and went more direct, I don't think they caused us many problems.

"We didn't panic when we went 1-0 down, we carried on playing, and I felt we had chances in the second half to kill the game off completely.

"With the match programme, we are looking a little heavy, and we could have done with the two-goal cushion.But overall I am very happy."
