Here is a selection of the reaction from supporters to Saturday’s 1-0 defeat.

@Gazz_Plods: Great first half, poor second half. Heads dropped when we went behind.

@LeeReynolds71: Taylor had to score, done the hard bit. Anywhere on target and goal

@AshleyMallett3: I think the young squad showed a lack of maturity when chasing the game. At 1-0 down the heads went and frustration rather than thought was apparent. Silly fouls and aimless passes. Bursik not commanding today. Hopefully they will learn from this.

@daniel_nice7: Tight game that could have gone either way, like most weeks. Whatever the results this season I don’t think you read too much into it and just move on to the next one

@pgjackson1: First half on top but didn't take our chances, second half disappointing

@PJohnsonBet: Played some nice football 1st half, not ruthless enough. Credit Wigan 2nd half pressed higher and closed us down quickly. Not sure about Bursic. Whiteman outstanding 1st half.

@ChrisDrfc: First half was brilliant, just didn't put away the chances, second half Wigan came back into it, to many sloppy passes unfortunately

@smidon58: If we want to challenge this season these are the type of games we must win

@aaron_challoner: I definitely felt like clinical finishes were our kryptonite today. Then the opposition exposed our non-clinical finishing from the first half and got that chance in the second half. Let's show some of that ruthlessness next time. At least we are still in the top five!

@scott_dog10: Should've had 2 in the first half, finishing really poor. Thought Copps wasn't anywhere near his usual standards. 2nd half we didn't even turn up. Wigan defence not great either, looked all over the place 1st half, then we didn't threaten them 2nd half

@southstandclez: Too many missed chances first half and not enough second half. One shot on target when they scored

@Donnybarmyarmy: Didn’t have the options of Tulloch and Lokilo so didn’t have as much pace going forward. Had enough chances in the first half to be out of sight, didn’t look the same team in the second half. Didn’t look like scoring when we went behind. I thought Wigan would do well today though
