Lee Cattermole will make his comeback to first team action this weekend in what promises to be a fiery clash with North West rivals, Blackburn Rovers.
The 21-year-old has been out for four games since lunging heftily into Scott Parker in Wigan`s loss to West Ham in March, but his return will be timely in a game where his manager says his players must "stick their head in where it hurts".
Cattermole has been one of Wigan Athletic`s best performers in the current campaign, with his tough displays and enthusiastic work rate helping Wigan into the top half of the league. Despite having spent over a month away from club first team action, the former Boro man has preserved his commendable stamina with a string of international U21 and club friendly appearances.
Despite this, Cattermole is keen to get back into the swing of things on the club front, but he is adamant that his suspension will not curb his contentious playing style in the middle of the park.
'I definitely won't stop making tackles because I have always done that - it's how I grew up. It's something I'm not going to stop, but obviously if I can do it without getting sent off then that would be a good thing.
'The last thing I want to do is get sent off again. It has been a horrible experience for me being out so long. I try and get on with all the referees and try and keep them sweet.
'But the way football is now, if you mis-time a tackle, or miss the ball by an inch and take the man instead, you can find yourself sent off, which is frustrating and you have to be so careful.
'If it's a last-ditch tackle though, you have to make it.'
