Latics have been hit by injuries to key players all season, Shaun Maloney joined the long term absentee list when he jetted off to the US for a back operation, which has seen him out from September, there is still no date for a return to the first team for last year's player of the season.
When you add to Maloney the casualties that were carried over from last season in Gary Caldwell, Ali Al Habsi and Ivan Ramis then you see that quality players have been missing for the biggest part of the season. Of course Al Habsi and Ramis are now back playing, though the latter has had a little set back, but throughout this current campaign the entire squad it seems have been dogged by niggles.
Thomas Rogne, Lee Nicholls, Scott Carson, Juan Carlos Garcia, Ben Watson, Emmerson Boyce and Grant Holt have all had time on the sidelines and Callum McManaman has had a niggling injury for most of the season, all things considered we have done well to remain in touch with the play-off spots
Currently Watson, Rogne, Ramis, Garcia, Nicholls and Carson have all been receiving treatment for short term injuries and Latics boss Uwe Rosler sounded a relieved man when he told the media that there is 'light at the end of the tunnel' with regards to the current crop that are on the physio's table
Bournemouth are in town on Saturday, a returning Ivan Ramis would be a great addition to the defence, especially after the way we conceded three goals against the MK Dons last weekend, whether the classy Spaniard is indeed one of those lights at the end of that tunnel or not we'll find out soon enough
Speaking about the current injury situation Rosler said:
'There is a little bit of light at the end of the tunnel with our injured players'
'There has been improved and hopefully there will be one or two more players available for Saturday.'
Ivan The Classy set for return?
