Injuries and Suspensions

All the latest injury news

Jason Pearce Ban Appealed, Josh Murphy Stays

Two pieces of news in the past 24 hours which could be classes as good news for the club. Although with our chances of survival all but zero, question has to be asked is there much to celebrate.

Grant Holt Out for up to a Year

The isolated man who looked set to be returned to the team under Malckay Mackay has gone and got himself injured, and it isn't a little one.

Watson and McCann Close in on Returns

They are finally closing in on their long waited returns, and the sooner we get Ben Watson and Chris McCann back into our team the better as it currently stands.

James McClean Joins Injury List

Just when we could start with player coming back into the fold, another of our lads manages to get himself injured.

Wigan Short of Midfielders Ahead of New Season?

As we all know Chris McCann and Ben Watson are out for a while following a fractured knee cap and broken leg respectively, well we are also currently having problems with James McArthur and Shaun Maloney as both of them work hard to be fit.

Scottish Latics in Line for First Team Return

It has been a very long time since Shaun Maloney played last in a Wigan shirt, and even longer since Gary Caldwell took to the field in the blue and white. Yet news today is that both players will be in the squad to face QPR.

Roger Espinoza Goes Under the Knife

Roger hasn't featured much in recent weeks, he did come on for the last half an hour against Manchester City in the second half. Since then he has gone under the knife to repair a hernia injury.

Chris McCann's Knee Fracture

The man in form in our midfielder will now more than likely miss the rest of the season. That is a massive loss for the club especially after the loss of Ben Watson a few weeks ago. The club are starting to run short of experienced midfielders.

Fraser Fyvie Yet Again Struggles With Injury

Poor Mr Fyvie yet again another injury sees him return to the club and cut a loan spell short. The player must be wondering what he has to do to string a few games together for a team and if he can break into the Latics team.

Club confirm Watson injury

After being taken off last night, Ben Watson is likely to miss the rest of the season after his nasty challenge with Martin Woods was costly for the midfielder.

Ivan Ramis Makes Footballing Return

At last the very talented Spanish defender is on the verge of returning to the side. Ramis has been massively missed since his injury at Fulham last season, and his return will add real quality to our defense, that is if we can keep hold of him in Ja

James McClean Free to Play

Wigan have successful appeal against the three match ban sustained by winger James McClean and he will now be free to play at the weekend.

Wigan Athletic to Appeal James McClean Red Card

In the last hour the club has officially announced they will appeal the red card issued to winger James McClean at the end of the game against Blackpool FC at the weekend.

Team News: Wigan Athletic vs Middlesbrough

A look ahead to who could feature for the two sides going into the game today.

Team News: AFC Bournemouth vs Wigan Athletic

Who will be missing out as Latics head to Dean Court? Or who will Owen Coyle look to bring into the starting 11 to freshen it up for a League game, where getting a win and continuing our momentum as a team will be of vital importance.

Macca to Miss Months

The younger winger Callum McManaman who exploded onto the world footballing stage with his man of the match performance against Manchester City will now be out for three months with knee ligament damage.

Jean Beasuejour and Ronnie Stam Join Physio’s List

Two games and two players now both out for our remaining few fixtures. Both players looked to have done nothing serious in their respective injuries, but both have ended up with server injuries which could keep them out for a few months.

Maynor Figueroa out for the Season

This one may or may not hurt us as much as Alcaraz’s injury. Yet not having the ever reliable Figueroa in a Wigan team is much like there not being an Emmerson Boyce. It doesn’t quite feel right.

Disaster! Antolin Alcaraz out for Three Weeks

Do not underestimate how much this man will be missed. Since the players substituted return against Reading, the team have only lost three games, the player only featuring full in one of those, and that was the defeat to Manchester City.

Injury Update: Callum McManaman

The young winger, who many Latics fans are now seeing as a first team starter, could miss out on the Norwich game, even though he has no actual ban. The winger is reportedly struggling with an ankle injury.

Injury: Ryo Miyaichi Out for the Season

This young man will go far, or he has the talent to go far anyway. That is if Ryo can keep away his injuries. Wigan fans have only ever seen glimpses of his talent, but what we have seen is very very good.

Injuries and Suspension: The Defenders Return

It has been a week where players are now slowly but surely starting to return to the first team, and at the weekend we saw another one re-join the Latics ranks. Antolin Alcaraz was the second defender to return from injury.

Injury Update: Duo to Return for FA Cup Date

Speaking to the local media, Roberto Martinez has hinted at the return to fitness of the missing trio. Antolin Alcaraz, Ryo Miyaichi and Albert Crusat have all been missing more or less all season.

Gary Caldwell Returns from International Duty

Defender Gary Caldwell has returned to the club, and is now the fifth defender to give his presence to our treatment room.

Injury Update: Ivan Ramis Out For Rest of Season

Another man goes down and it is going to a long hard road for Ramis as he has to overcome a ruptured cruciate ligament. That means the defender will miss the rest of the season, and will only return through the summer.

Latics and the Injury Crisis

A 26 man strong squad now reduced with 8 players out injured. Could it get any worse? Well it could, they could all be out for a very long time. I try to piece together just exactly who we can expect back and when.

Suspensions: Figueroa and Caldwell will both miss

Both Maynor Figueroa and Gary Caldwell will miss this weekends game against QPR, as they are both to serve a one match ban.

Latics Midfielding Crisis

We always said we had too many midfielders, now with two on the sidelines we are starting to look a little short on quality midfielders who can play for Latics.

Antolin Alcaraz's Absence Continues

Well did we expect anything different? The Paraguayan defender is still out with a groin injury, which continues to persist since picking up on the last international duty for his country. Antolin is likely to continue his recovery.

Injuries: Beausejour and Alcaraz Both Doubts

Well it happens doesn't it. Those pesky injuries that players pick up through the season. Yet when it comes to a team like us, we hope that it doesn't happen to often as we don't have the players to cover them.....

Injury Report: James McArthur

Come on Franco!

Not many would ever believe it, but our Argentinian striker (Franco Di Santo) has turned out to be a very good player, eventually. It has taken him over a season and a half but he is playing some great football, and the team will and have missed him when he hasn't been on the pitch.
