Wigan's Boyce Hits Out At Slow Starts

Emmerson Boyce admits getting left in the traps is hampering Wigan's attempt to win their relegation dogfight.

The Latics have conceded the opening goal NINETEEN times in their 28 games this season and only twice fought back to win.

They did manage to snag a point at Norwich on Sunday having slipped behind once again.

But Boyce is urging his team-mates to stop giving themselves a mountain to climb by starting games so poorly.

He said: ``For some reason we always seem to start games off slowly, and too many times we are gifting opponents a one-goal lead.

``I couldn’t tell you why. It’s a strange one and we have been doing it all season - which has really cost us.''

Wigan are bottom of the Premier League but only two points from safety and Boyce is confident his side can survive.

He added: ``We just need to start converting our chances now when they do come along and turn some of these draws into wins and get moving up the table.

``We play West Brom on Saturday and it's another massive game for us.''
