"Heskey Out" Rumours

There are rumours that, owing to a groin strain, 3-goal Heskey is "doubtful" for todays game. Record signing Heskey, who has featured in every one of Wigans games this season, suffered the injury in last week's win at Bolton and seems unlikely to have recovered in time to face Monicas' team.

"Gary Teale (hamstring) is definitely out",
reports the sportinglife "so last week's match-winner Lee McCulloch and Wales international David Cotterill are expected to step in even though Antonio Valencia came through a midweek reserve outing after his recent hamstring problem. "

Alongside McCulloch will be Austrian midfielder Paul Scharner both having scored two goals each this season. Perhaps our midfielders should take a few notes. In fact 6 of their players have scored this season in the Premiership which cannot but help the results.

We're also treated to some words of encouragement from an interview with the Wigan boss Paul Jewell.
"They may be bottom but there is not much difference between us and them," said Jewell. "The lower half of the table is going to be very tight anyway this season. I am pretty sure the situation will be changing from week to week and the likes of Charlton, ourselves and plenty of other clubs will be looking over their shoulders."
Don't get sucked in, Monica, he's only trying to lull you into a feeling of security!
