Wigan's Watson suffers double leg break

Wednesday 19 February 2014

Wigan midfielder Ben Watson has suffered a double leg break from an injury he picked up in Tuesday’s win against Barnsley, according to BBC Sport.


Ben Watson is stretchered off


The 28-year-old had to be stretchered off in the first half of the match against Barnsley following a collision with Martin Woods.


Wigan have confirmed that the midfielder has fractured both his tibia and fibula and is likely to miss the rest of the season.


“To lose a player and a person of Ben's quality is a big blow to us but we will regroup,” said manager Uwe Rosler.


“We need to move on as a squad and keep trying to achieve our goals for the season, with the added incentive now of doing it for Ben.”


The injury will now prevent Watson from continuing the Latics FA Cup run this season after he helped his side win the trophy with an injury-time goal against Manchester City last year.


Watson also suffered from a similar broken leg against Liverpool in 2012 however the break suffered against Barnsley was in a different place and is not thought to be career threatening.


“Ben recovered last time and went on to experience the high of scoring that goal at Wembley, and write himself into the heart of every Wigan Athletic supporter,” Rosler added.


“He is a terrific professional, a fighter, and I am sure he will return from this latest setback.”
