Gary Rowett: 'Stoke City deserved to be booed after Wigan Athletic defeat'

Rowett: 'Stoke deserved to be booed'

Manager Gary Rowett says that Stoke City deserved to be booed off the pitch after suffering a 3-0 defeat at home to Wigan Athletic on Wednesday night.

Manager Gary Rowett has claimed that Stoke City got the reaction that they "absolutely deserved" after losing 3-0 at home to Wigan Athletic.

The Potters went into Wednesday's fixture having only recorded two points from their opening three matches in the Championship, and the Staffordshire-based outfit were well beaten by the Latics at the bet365 Stadium.

Rowett has acknowledged that he could understand the reaction of the club's supporters, admitting that his new side 'have not been good enough' since the start of the campaign.

The 44-year-old is quoted by Sky Sports News as saying: "I'm not going to try and justify any of that. We got the reaction that we absolutely deserved, I'm not going to absolve myself from that, we deserve to be booed, we deserve the stadium being half empty as we haven't been good enough.

"I've got to say to them that I can completely understand their frustrations. I'm not sure whether you can say it was far worse than lots of games last season, it wasn't a good game and I don't think there have been many good performances for a long time."

Stoke currently sit in 22nd place in the second-tier standings.
