The latest injury and fitness news ahead of Latics v Oldham Athletic in Sky Bet League One.

  • Team news: Wigan Athletic v Oldham Athletic.
  • Samy Morsy returns from international duty with Egypt.
  • Latics have a fully fit squad to choose from.

Speaking to iFollow Latics and the club's official YouTube channel at the Wigan Athletic Training Centre on Thursday morning, assistant manager Leam Richardson said Paul Cook has a fully fit squad to choose from against Oldham Athletic, with Samy Morsy returning from his international duties with Egypt in Switzerland.


Latics welcome back captain Samy Morsy, after the Egyptian midfielder missed the 3-0 victory at Walsall last Wednesday and last Saturday's 2-0 win at Bury due to his international commitments.

Shaun MacDonald continues to step up his recovery from a knee injury, but is unlikely to feature just yet.

Latics are injury free across the squad heading into the final 10 games of the season.

Last XI v Bury: Walton, Byrne, Elder, Power, Vaughan, Jacobs, Dunkley, Powell, Colclough, Fulton, Burn (Capt)


The visitors could be without defender Cameron Dummigan for the remainder of the season after the Northern Ireland man picked up a groin injury on international duty this week.

It's unsure whether experienced defender Anthony Gerrard will be back from an injury which kept him out of Oldham's defeat to Portsmouth earlier this month, but other than Dummigan and Gerrard, Richie Wellens has a fully fit squad to choose from, including former Latics players Craig Davies and Jack Byrne.

Last XI v Portsmouth: Placide, Dummigan, Moimbe, McLaughlin, Bryan, Gardner, Fane, Byrne, Davies, Doyle
