EARLY TEAM NEWS

Speaking at his press call at the Wigan Athletic Training Centre on Tuesday afternoon, Latics boss Paul Cook gave updates on Callum McManaman, Gary Roberts and Michael Jacobs, but held all of his cards close to his chest with regards to selection availability against Hull City on Wednesday evening.

"We will keep our bumps and bruises from the weekend quite private; but we have unfortunately got a couple of issues in and around stuff and that is how it is at this stage of the season.

"We are disappointed with injuries, of course, and it puts a big onus on the lads who are fit to carry us in what we are searching for.

"Cal Mac is touch and go whether that will be his season done and for Gary Roberts it isn’t season over but, other than the obvious with Crackers, we’ll keep the rest close to our chest for now."

CLASSIC ACTION

PLAYED FOR BOTH
