Kevin Kilbane has admitted Wigan Athletic are again looking over their shoulders following the weekend defeat at Sunderland.
The Latics boosted their chances of avoiding the drop with a recent win against West Ham, but are now just a point clear of Reading after going down 2-0 at The Stadium of Light.
Goals from Dickson Etuhu and Daryl Murphy secured the win for Roy Keane's men and Kilbane is unhappy Wigan missed a good opportunity to build on their win over The Hammers.
"We got ourselves into a great position after beating West Ham last week but now we're looking over our shoulder again," Kilbane told the Wigan Evening Post.
"After the game, the lads were asking what the other results were and we'd rather be in a position where we don't have to do that.
"Ideally, you just want to concentrate on yourselves, not be relying on what other teams do. We came back into the dressing room on Saturday thinking, how did we lose that?
"It's so disappointing because we knew we should have won judging by the chances we had during the game.
"We have a long time to dwell on the Sunderland result rather than getting it out of our systems with another game."
