Wigan Athletic Injury Update

Wigan Athletic Injury Update

Wigan Athletic duo Titus Bramble and James McCarthy are fighting to be fit for tomorrows clash against Birmingham City at St. Andrews with both players being rated as 'likely to play` by Latics boss Roberto Martinez.

Bramble suffered a tightening of his hamstring in the game against Bolton Wanderers two weeks ago and he had to be withdrawn from the game on 56 minutes to prevent further damage being done, the big defender was described as 50/50 for last Sundays clash with Spurs and unfortunately he failed to recover on time.

James McCarthy took a nasty knock on his ankle during the second half of the Spurs game following a challenge by Tom Huddlestone and as a result suffered soft tissue damage with his ankle swelling quite dramatically causing concern for the young midfielders fitness ahead of the Birmingham fixture.

Manager Roberto Martinez is hopeful that both McCarthy and Bramble will recover in time to take their places in the starting line up and the importance of the two to the team isn`t lost on the boss, McCarthy has been on top form lately whilst Bramble`s experience is invaluable as the season`s run in is about to begin

Speaking about the two recovering in time to play Martinez says it looks quite positive, he says: "Titus has improved a lot over the past 48 hours and we'll continue to assess him. I wouldn't like to say for sure whether he will be available, but at the moment it looks quite positive. "

'James took a nasty knock to the ankle on Sunday. It swelled right up after a challenge by Tom Huddlestone. But he is a quick healer and we're hopeful he'll be okay.'

'Titus has been playing really well this season, and he had begun to form a great partnership with Gary Caldwell.

'Paul Scharner came in against Tottenham and did an effective job, but he had been doing a fine job in midfield and probably we missed his
influence there.

'You don't want to ever have players unavailable, especially the experienced professionals we have at the club like Titus.'

The Mac is especially pivotal, for his own sake and the teams.
