Latics skipper set for late test

BY foxsports • January 29, 2010

Melchiot had to come off with a neck problem in the Latics' 2-1 defeat at Blackburn on Wednesday and faces a late fitness test. Chris Kirkland is still recovering from the collarbone injury that he sustained in training last week, so Serbian loanee Vladimir Stojkovic is likely to continue in goal. Fellow goalkeeper Richard Kingson is still at the African Nations Cup with Ghana, but otherwise, Roberto Martinez has a full squad to choose from. Wigan (from): Stojkovic, Pollitt, Bramble, Amaya, Caldwell, Boyce, Figueroa, Diame, Thomas, Gomez, N'Zogbia, Scharner, McCarthy, Scotland, Rodallega, Sinclair, Watson, Gohouri.
