Late fitness test for Melchiot

29 January 2010 11:32
Wigan could be without captain Mario Melchiot for the visit of Everton in the Barclays Premier League. Melchiot had to come off with a neck problem in the 2-1 defeat at Blackburn on Wednesday and faces a late fitness test. Chris Kirkland is still recovering from the collarbone injury he sustained in training last week so Serbian loanee Vladimir Stojkovic is likely to continue in goal. Fellow goalkeeper Richard Kingson is still at the African Nations Cup with Ghana but otherwise Roberto Martinez has a full squad to choose from.
