Latics pair doubtful for Blues trip

BY foxsports • February 26, 2010

Central defender Bramble is still struggling with the hamstring injury that forced him to miss last week's defeat by Tottenham. In-form midfielder McCarthy, this week called up by the Republic of Ireland, took an ankle knock against Spurs and will be assessed. Manager Roberto Martinez otherwise has a fully-fit squad available as the Latics look to end a six-match winless run. Wigan (from): Kirkland, Melchiot, Caldwell, Boyce, Figueroa, Scharner, N'Zogbia, Diame, Thomas, McCarthy, Rodallega, Moreno, Moses, Scotland, Sinclair, Stojkovic, Gomez, Koumas, Bramble.
