Wigan Athletic manager Uwe Rosler has backed his side to gain promotion back to the Premier League next season.

The Latics lost 2-1 in the play off semi final away at Queens Park Rangers, as Charlie Austin scored twice to break Wigan hearts.

Austin’s goals were a killer blow, following James Perch’s first half opener.

But Rosler believes his side can use the momentum from this season, which has included a Europa League, FA Cup, and Play off run, and gain promotion next year.

“I’m a strong believer that first you have to fail before you become a winner. Next year, we will be winners,” Rosler told BBC Radio Manchester.

Rosler, who replaced Owen Coyle as Wigan boss in the December of last year, said: “I congratulate every player for the fact that they gave me everything. That is a fantastic feeling as a manager, when you have a group of players who dig in every single day.

“They’ve had to play catch up for four or five months and with not a lot of room for error.

“In the end, the tank got more empty and we found it harder to keep on winning, but we were very close.”
