Carlton Cole has given his post-Wigan Athletic thoughts exclusively to WHUTV - and you can log on now to see them in full as well as all the match highlights.

The England striker was at the centre of an eventful evening at the JJB Stadium. He scored the only goal of a 1-0 victory when he finished off a tremendous free-flowing passing move with a sublime strike. Cole then saw red soon afterwards for a second yellow card that left both managers and most neutrals thinking he was hard done-by.

CLICK HERE TO SEE THE GOAL

Cole said: "I just watched the replay and I thought it was a well-taken goal but the build up play to it was fantastic. Tomka won the ball on the halfway line, there was some quick one-touch passing and I was at the end of it. I didn't realise how good the goal was until I saw the replay."

On the red card, the 25-year-old said: "I am so sad I can't play in the next two games. I don't know what the referee saw. He made a decision and he stuck by it and I got sent-off It was backs against the wall for us but the boys played brilliantly. They got their man sent off and we were comfortable from then on."
