EARLY TEAM NEWS

WIGAN ATHLETIC

Latics are close to having a clean bill of health for the second week running, giving Paul Cook difficult decisions to make with his match day squad.

Speaking to iFollow Latics on Friday morning, the manager said:

"We have one or two minor issues, but they're something of nothing and I'd rather focus on the healthy number of options we have.

"We're looking the strongest we've looked since the early stages of the season and given we're unbeaten in four matches, we're set up well for a really busy month in March."

Should Nick Powell feature, he'll move up a place in our 100 Club, jumping above Ben Watson into 60th on the list of top appearance holders since 1978 on 112.

Samy Morsy will also jump up two spots. Should he play, Morsy will be making his 102nd league appearance since joining in January 2016, moving him into 69th on the list above Dan Burn and Stuart Balmer and one behind iFollow Latics co-commentator Tommy Gore.

MIDDLESBROUGH

Tony Pulis has had a couple of injury concerns in recent weeks, with club captain George Friend missing last weekend's 2-0 win against QPR and Aden Flint missing the home victory due to a hamstring complaint.

Latics were held to a goalless draw against promotion chasing Middlesbrough at the DW Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

In a game of few chances, Sam Morsy went closest for Latics in the first-half before Leon Clarke headed off target from a Lee Evans cross midway through the second 45.

Latics made two changes to their starting XI to face Middlesbrough in the Sky Bet Championship, with Nathan Byrne and Cedric Kipre coming in for Michael Jacobs and Anthony Pilkington.

Paul Cook’s side had to battle throughout and from the off faced pressure from a Middlesbrough attack as Chey Dunkley provided an important last-ditch tackle on Ashley Fletcher.

Boro then should have taken the lead when Jonny Howson’s shot flew across goal where Britt Assombalonga – well placed at the back post – somehow managed to divert the ball off target.

Latics’ best chance of the first-half fell to Morsy but he was denied at close range by a good save from Darren Randolph after Kal Naismith had chested ball into the Egyptian’s path from a Reece James delivery.

Before half-time, Boro had further chances as George Saville shot wide from a set-piece following a controversial decision to give a foul and yellow card against Chey Dunkley.

Shortly after Jamie Jones had to make a smart save to deny Mo Besic’s shot from range.

After a slow start to the second-half from both sides, Evans provided a superb delivery from the right which Clarke did excellently to almost divert into the top corner, but the ball flew narrowly wide.

James then shot over from 25 yards when the DW Stadium was expecting a thunderbolt from the ever-impressive Chelsea loanee before Boro may have got their winner when Fletcher rounded Jones but fired into the side-netting on the angle.

On 82 minutes, substitute Pilkington drove at the Boro penalty area but his shot, despite being well hit, was comfortably saved by Randolph.
