Jermaine Jenas struck twice and Aaron Lennon drilled home a volley as we forged into a 3-0 lead at half-time. As Wigan offered little in return, Darren Bent made it 4-0 in the second half, we struck the woodowork twice, a linesman's flag denied JJ a hat-trick and Chris Kirkland made at least two fine saves.
"The scoreline was a fair reflection of the match - very fair," said Barlow. "We were very disappointing, and contributed to a couple of their goals, while Spurs were outstanding at times.
"We knew before today the position we're in - and this result only compounds that. We can't afford to wait for a new manager to come in and wave a magic wand, we have to sort ourselves out now.
"We have to be fit, passionate and determined to turn things around because this team is capable of staying in this league."
Wigan caretaker boss Frank Barlow had no complaints after our 4-0 win against the Latics at the Lane on Sunday.
