Leam Richardson admitted the three points and clean sheet were the only two things that mattered about Wigan Athletic’s 1-0 victory over Rochdale. With seven changes to the side that knocked Manchester City out of the FA Cup five days earlier, Latics struggled to get into their rhythm against rock-bottom Rochdale. But they picked up all three points thanks to Michael Jacobs’ 12th-minute striker, which keeps them three points adrift of League One leaders Blackburn - with three games in hand.
Michael Jacobs scored the only goal after 12 minutes as Wigan Athletic got their promotion push back on track with a narrow victory over bottom-of-the-league Rochdale. Both sides came into the game on the back of FA Cup heroics, Latics knocking out Manchester City and Rochdale securing a replay against Tottenham next week. And it was Latics who managed to take the spoils - but the result was in doubt right to the end.
Leam Richardson hailed Michael Jacobs after the stand-in skipper’s early goal gave Wigan Athletic a crucial victory over Rochdale. Jacobs, one of seven changes to the side that beat Manchester City in the FA Cup five days earlier, put Latics in front with a wonderful left-foot strike inside 12 minutes. And it proved to be the only goal of a tight, nervy triumph, which sees Latics remain three points behind leaders Blackburn, and two behind second-placed Shrewsbury - with three games in hand.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
