Uwe Rosler: Saw Wigan come up short against Harry Redknapp's QPR

Uwe Rosler expects his Wigan Athletic squad to be back stronger for having suffered play-off semi-final heartache.

A gruelling campaign for Wigan came to an end on Monday as they suffered a 2-1 defeat away at Queens Park Rangers.

With the two sides having played out a goalless first leg, success at Loftus Road was enough to carry the hosts through to Wembley and book a final date with Derby County.

Wigan, though, can reflect favourably on their campaign - with success enjoyed in the Sky Bet Championship, the Europa League and FA Cup.

Rosler is convinced that their experiences will serve them well heading forward, with attention already turning towards another promotion push in 2014/15.

He told Sky Sports: "They gave me every little drop. I squeezed out everything and they gave everything to me - 99.9 per cent of our squad has been unbelievable.

"It was very close. It was unfortunate, after 62 games we took it right to the wire.

"The players will come out stronger out of this. I believe that you have to fail first before you become a winner. Next year we will be winners."
