Gabe Osho | "We're really happy with three points!"

Gabe Osho was ‘delighted’ with a second successive win against Wigan Athletic in the space of four days.


Harry Cornick scored after pouncing on a defensive error before Elijah Adebayo doubled Town's advantage in the second period.

The defender played a key part in the victory, helping preserve a 10th clean sheet in the Sky Bet Championship with an all-round solid display.

“It’s a tough place to come, Osho admitted after the match. “They know a lot about us from the last couple of weeks so it was always going to be a tight game but we’re really happy with the three points.”

“I think the early goal really helped,” he continued. “In the recent games we’ve played against them, they’ve gone in front so today we were really happy with the early goal and that built a platform for us to get a second and make it a bit more comfortable.”

The tenth shut-out in the league was a result of a resolute team performance, Osho believed as he shared just how much it meant to him and his team-mates.

“It’s always good to get a clean sheet but it’s not just the back boys, it’s everyone. You see the work Elijah and Corns were doing today which was really helpful for the whole team.

“We have to defend against them every day in training so we know how hard they work, every single one of them. It just shows that our top scorer Carlton isn’t here today but the two boys up front stepped up and did well. It just shows the squad we have.

“We’re just a resolute group. We know how to stick together when it gets tough and that normally happens in away games and more importantly teams when we play away, they tend to come out a little bit more and that benefits our style of play, we can hit them on the counter, play a bit longer and I think that is what does it.”
