Injury boost for Wigan

Wigan midfielder Ben Watson

Wigan’s chances of staying in the Premier League have been boosted by the news Ben Watson has returned to action for the under-21s.

Watson has been on the sidelines for the last five months after breaking his leg against Liverpool back in November but is now closing in on a return to the first-team squad.

The 27-year-old played 45 minutes as the Latics fought out a 2-2 draw against Huddersfield and as long as he suffers no reaction to the run-out, he looks sure to figure before the season is out.

The return of Watson will come as a huge boost to boss Roberto Martinez who will need as many options as possible as his side battle to stay in the Premier League.
