EARLY TEAM NEWS

Speaking to iFollow Latics at the Wigan Athletic Training Centre on Friday morning, Latics assistant manager Leam Richardson gave the latest update on Nick Powell, who was replaced early in Wednesday night's 3-1 win over Blackburn Rovers.

"Nick has been in with the physios and been in the gym, whilst he has also had scans.

"We want him on the pitch but we certainly can't put him or the team at risk."

Latics continue to be without longer term injured players Antonee Robinson (ankle), Gavin Massey (hamstring), Michael Jacobs (hamstring) and Chey Dunkley (knee).

For Wanderers, who lost at Sheffield Wednesday in midweek, Josh Magennis is a doubt, their boss Phil Parkinson confirmed earlier today.

A SPECIAL DAY FOR CAL MAC

Callum McManaman could make his 200th career appearance if he features at the University of Bolton Stadium on Saturday.

Latics’ forward, who is in his second spell with the club, scored the third goal against Blackburn Rovers to ensure victory for Paul Cook’s side, finishing smartly at the back-post after Josh Windass’ cross.
