McManaman will have a big say in the final games

McManaman will have a big say in the final games




Wigan Athletic reserves beat Blackpool reserves yesterday 2-1 to consolidate their place at the top of the reserves league, once again young striker Callum McManaman was the star of the show.

McManaman grabbed a goal to go with his great performance, he is now pushing for a return to the first team squad following a complete recovery from a nasty head injury sustained against Bolton in the FA Cup replay back in January.

McManaman`s return to form hasn`t been lost on Latics boss Roberto Martinez who, when speaking to the Latics official site, said that the youngster will have a role to play with the first team in the next few weeks.

Martinez said: 'Callum's progression has been phenomenal, and we all saw in the FA Cup replay against Bolton Wanderers that he was the stand-out player until he had to be substituted after a nasty head injury.

'From that moment we've had to give him a little bit of time to recover, he lost a lot of weight but is now beginning to push again for a place in the First Team and I feel he is in the kind of moment that could provide us with something important before the end of the season.

'He has the talent of finding a goal, producing something out of nothing and bringing a real spark to any game which is important, and in my opinion he will have a big say in these final six games of the season.'
