Hugo Rodallega out to make amends


Hugo Rodallega is hoping to make amends as he returns from suspension this weekend.

The Colombian marksman was handed a three-match ban after picking up a straight red card in the defeat at Manchester United last month.

The Latics have struggled in the striker’s absence and have picked up just one point while Rodallega was out of the side, as well as being dumped out of the Carling Cup by Arsenal.

However, Rodallega is available for the trip to Everton this weekend and boss Roberto Martinez feels the striker is keen to make amends following his suspension.

“It’s a massive boost to have Hugo available again,” Martinez told the Observer.

“From a mental point of view you couldn’t get anyone with more of a desire to get out there.

“It’s been so frustrating for him, and in many ways a learning process for him.

“I’m sure he’s learned his lesson from what happened and he’s desperate to make amends on Saturday.”
