Martinez considers left-back options

The Honduran defender starts a two-match ban for picking up his 10th yellow card of the season at Chelsea last weekend. The Latics face a crucial trip to Bloomfield Road on Saturday as they bid to beat the drop from the Premier League. Martinez told the Wigan Evening Post: "I haven't made my mind up yet. We have a few sessions before the game and it's important to see how the players are and what moments of form they are in. "We have options, it's not a situation where we need to be too creative. We've been saving Steve Gohouri's legs because he was also on nine bookings and we couldn't afford to lose both players. "Obviously we have Adrian Lopez as well who is fully fit and in that respect we have really good options. "Steven Caldwell has been working really well and you feel that we can find a replacement for Maynor. "You don't want to lose players but the nature of the game is that you need to be prepared to cope with suspensions and I feel that the squad are going to take that and use it as a unique opportunity for someone else and enjoy the next two games."
