Heskey will Miss Swiss

Heskey will Miss Swiss

Wigan Athletic and England centre forward Emile Heskey has been pulled out of Fabio Capellas first squad for the game on Wednesday against Switzerland with a nerve injury.

Heskey was substituted after 57 minutes of Latics win over West Ham today suffering from what appeared to be some sort of strain, after the match Latics boss Steve Bruce said:

'He has got a problem, a nerve problem I think it is, and I think it's a continuation of a big fella being out for three to four months,'

'He's getting little niggles, pulls and strains and we will be getting in touch with England but he will be pulling out without question.'

With Heskey missing the midweek action it is hoped that, with treatment, he can be fit for the massive match next Saturday against Sunderland at the Stadium of Light.

Happened at a horrible time as far as his England future is concerned. A new coach who is prepared to give players like Heskey a chance and that happens.

Is it me, or has Heskey been injured more times this season than I've had hot dinners?

Latics v Latics - Big Game Preview

The new pitch has been laid, marked and hovered in time for the visit of Oldham Athletic in what could be a very significant League 1 clash.

If results go our way, come 5pm tonight we could find ourselves in second spot in the league table, a position that would set us up nicely for next week's clash with promotion rivals Walsall, but let's not get ahead of ourselves.

The last time I was thinking like this with full on confidence was prior to the Blackpool game in December, what a
