MOSES SHOULD BE FIT
Wigan Athletic manager Roberto Martinez has said that he is hopeful that striker Victor Moses will be fit for the match against Stoke city on Saturday.
Victor Moses was injured in the match against Liverpool after he was kicked by Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel in the head, which has proven to be more serious than initially feared.
Wigan finally won the match 2-1 after a splendid performance, which led to their first win at Anfield. It was initially thought that Victor Moses could have broken his jaw, which would have halted the progress Wigan have been making in the league in the last few weeks.
However, scans have confirmed that the striker has not broken jaw and that there is every chance he will be fit for the match against Stoke city during the weekend.
Roberto Martinez has confirmed that Victor Moses is currently 70% is rated to start the match against Stoke city. He said that there was no fracture of the jaw, but he was still awaiting the confirmation from the doctors that he is good enough to play in the match. Wigan have been having an injury crisis in the forward department, with Hugo Rodallega and Mohamed Diame only now approaching full fitness, but it is highly unlikely that they will take part in this weekend match against Stoke city.
"At the moment I would say it is 70% he is going to be fully fit, but that is as much as I can say at the moment. "The reports from the hospital were very positive but we need to see how he reacts to the work in training. "It looks positive but he is not going to be 100% until Friday. At least there is no fracture, which we were a little bit fearful about," Martinez said.
