EARLY TEAM NEWS

WIGAN ATHLETIC

Speaking to iFollow Latics at the Wigan Athletic Training Centre on Friday morning, Latics boss Paul Cook gave an update on the status of Nick Powell's availability after Tuesday night's goal scorer was withdrawn at half time as a precaution.

"We're not worried about Powelly at the minute, it was precautionary for sure.

"In terms of the games now, it's no different to any other team, if you were to lose a player at this stage of the season now, the likelihood is you lose them for the rest of the season.

"For the position we're in, losing our better players and Powelly is one of those better players for sure, is not something we want or need."

Former Canary Anthony Pilkington missed Tuesday's visit to Hull City due to an injury picked up towards the end of last Saturday's 2-2 draw at Bristol City, whilst Gary Roberts and Callum McManaman remain doubtful for Sunday, with Michael Jacobs unavailable for the remainder of the campaign.

NORWICH CITY

Daniel Farke has no fresh injury concerns ahead of the Canaries' visit to the DW Stadium.

The Norwich boss said he isn't concerned about the slight knock Marco Stiepermann picked up during the week against Reading.

Speaking to canaries.co.uk, Farke said:

"We will have a calmed down day tomorrow. Some players need some treatment to recover.

"We don't want to overload the players. On Saturday we will train for the last time and travel to Wigan and be prepared for the early kick-off on Sunday."

Attendance: TBC

Jordy de Wijs scored an 89th minute header to keep Hull City’s Sky Bet Championship play-off hopes alive as Latics’ away struggles continued at the KCOM Stadium.

Nick Powell’s seventh goal of the season had given Latics a first-half lead but Fraizer Campbell levelled early in the second 45 for the hosts.

Latics made one change from the starting XI that drew 2-2 away at Bristol City on Saturday, with Darron Gibson replacing Cedric Kipre. Anthony Pilkington, who scored the late equaliser at Ashton Gate, missed out due to injury.

Paul Cook’s side started brightly with Powell firing over from range before Joe Garner headed off target from a Reece James cross.

At the other end, Gibson made a vital interception to deny Jackson Irvine when well placed before Christian Walton produced a fine save to deny Jarrod Bowen.

Hull looked the more likely in a ten minute period before Latics got their opener as Marc Pugh hit the bar and Kamil Grosicki volleyed wide.

However, Latics got their opener on the stroke of half-time as Powell met a James cross and finished well inside the penalty area.

The lead lasted just six second-half minutes, though, as Grosicki shot from the edge of the area and Walton couldn’t claim cleanly, with Campbell pouncing on the follow up.

Latics had a great chance to regain the lead when Gavin Massey headed a Josh Windass corner towards goal, but David Marshall saved bravely.

The game looked to be heading to a draw but Latics surrendered another valuable point as de Wijs headed in from an 89th minute corner.

Hull City: Marshall; Lichaj, De Wijs, Burke, Pugh (Batty 60), Grosicki, Irvine, Kane (Martin 86), Bowen, Henriksen (Capt) (Evandro 75), Campbell.
Subs: Long, Stewart, Fleming, McKenzie.

Latics: Walton; Byrne, James, Dunkley, Fox, Robinson; Gibson (L. Evans 87), Morsy (Capt); Windass, Powell (Massey 45), Garner (Clarke 60).
Subs: O. Evans, Kipre, Olsson, Naismith.
