Victor Moses setback hits Wigan Athletic


Wigan Athletic boss Roberto Martinez’s main concern following the 2-0 Carling Cup quarter-final defeat at Arsenal was a nasty shoulder injury sustained by Victor Moses.

Moses had to be replaced shortly before half-time at the Emirates Stadium, with Martinez concerned that the winger may be sidelined for around six weeks.

He told the club’s official website:“We worked really hard to restrict Arsenal but too many things affected us again.

“The injury to Victor Moses, the own goal, it was too much. Up until their first goal I thought we defended quite well.

“Our main concern now is Victor and Mauro Boselli also came out of the game with an injury – the squad is looking quite thin at the moment.

“Victor fell very awkwardly and straightaway you could see that he had dislocated his shoulder. We sent him straight to hospital and we’ll continue to assess him.

“Unfortunately we are looking at anything between four to six week, and that’s a shame because he looked very sharp.

“He got into a few one-on-one situations and he looked a real threat. We know how much we’re going to miss Victor for the next few weeks.”
