We deserved to lose - Ferguson

Published Add your comment

Sir Alex Ferguson conceded Manchester United got what they deserved on Wednesday night as they had their lead at the top of the Premier League cut to five points following a 1-0 defeat by Wigan at the DW Stadium.

The Latics had not even managed a draw in 14 previous meetings with their north-west neighbours, but Shaun Maloney's curling strike four minutes after the break brought that record to an end and allowed Wigan to clamber out of the relegation zone for the first time since October.

"Wigan were the better team," said Ferguson, as his side had an eight-match winning run brought to an end, suffering their first defeat since January in the process.
