'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Nobby explains his penalty miss

Following an uncharacteristic miss from the 12 yards mark our Peruvian trumpeter has explained just why creaking John Filan managed to throw his rheumatoid ridden wrist in the way of his spot kick:

"When you take a penalty you should never change your mind about which way you are going to go. In the last few games I have sent the ball to one side, the right, and scored. But I changed my mind and went to the left and the keeper went early. I have always been told not to change my mind and I am disappointed that I did.

Against Liverpool and West Ham I went to the keeper's right but this time I didn't. If it is any consolation some of the best players in the world have missed a penalty but at the moment that doesn't make me feel better. I am still confident to take penalties and I will step up against Middlesbrough if I have to. Every game is different and we have to move on. That includes me taking penalties again.'

On the game itself he commented: 'They scored a great goal from the free-kick, but overall in the first half we didn't play that badly. The second half was disappointing and this result is bad because it has hit our hopes of finishing in the top six, and the manager had stressed how important winning at Wigan was before the game. We should have taken three points but now all we can do is try to look forward to Middlesbrough.'
