EARLY TEAM NEWS

Speaking to iFollow Latics ahead of his side's Sky Bet Championship trip to Middlesbrough, Paul Cook gave the following updates:

"Chey Dunkley has been in an had an operation on his knee on Thursday and Nick Powell has been suffering with tendonitis. When you add that to the other injuries and you're facing matches like we have recently, you have to be careful in terms of heightening your problems in the pursuit of being successful.

"The key for me is keeping our lads very focused and believing in what they're doing.

"The important thing for us is believing in the players we've got available and getting the players who are out injured back as soon as we can.

"If you go back to our last away win the front four at Stoke haven't been fit for a long time."

In other news, Gary Roberts has been missing since Sheffield United away and captain Samy Morsy is suspended following his fifth yellow card of the season against Leeds United.

Gavin Massey has been making positive progress in his recovery, with Will Grigg and Michael Jacobs still working hard to come back from hamstring injuries.

Daniel Ayala is available for selection following suspension.
