James McCarthy is a Major Doubt

James McCarthy is a Major Doubt


Wigan Athletic young midfield man James McCarthy appears to be a major doubt for this evenings clash with local rivals Bolton Wanderers at the DW Stadium.

McCarthy was withdrawn with a hamstring strain in last weeks 1-1 draw with Stoke on 54 minutes, once McCarthy had left the field Stoke really came back into the game, the youngsters enthusiasm, drive and work rate was missed dare I say to the point that Tuncay was allowed to drift into the Latics box un-marked to score the Potters equaliser.

Martinez will want to give his starlet every opportunity to be fit for the game so a late fitness test is scheduled though he wont be risked if there is the slightest doubt.

At the moment McCarthy is rated 50/50 and Martinez has spoken about his chances: 'James McCarthy is 50-50 for the game, after having to come off against Stoke. He's been playing a lot of football lately and we've all enjoyed watching him, so we'll asses him right up until the game and hope he has a speedy recovery.

'He's a true ambassador of Wigan Athletic. A young, enthusiastic man with great potential and a great attitude.'

He has come on in leaps and bounds, literally, and has impressed everyone, I think!

If he does misses out lets hope it is for Moses or Moreno and not for Thomas

If McCarthy is missing I can see the centre three being Thomas, Diame and Scharner, with Zog and Hugo out wide and Scotland up front
