Wigan boss Roberto Martinez faces a few selection dilemmas ahead of the visit of former club Swansea to the DW Stadium. Only days away of their maiden FA Cup final against Manchester City, the Latics must also weigh up the fact that three points against the Swans would lift them out of the drop zone with only two matches left to play.
With one of the smallest squads as well as one of the biggest injury lists in the Premier League, Martinez does not have much room to manoeuvre as he awaits the visit of the club that he left to join Wigan in the summer of 2009.
Jean Beausejour is likely to join Maynor Figueroa on the sidelines after suffering a hamstring injury at West Brom, but Antolin Alcaraz may be given a run out to test his match fitness ahead of Saturday’s Wembley showpiece after recovering from a hamstring problem of his own.
The Swans, who have only won once since their success in the Capital One Cup in late February, have now been hit by the news that top scorer Michu is likely to miss the rest of the season after limping off with a hamstring injury in the goalless draw with Manchester City at the weekend.
However, aside from the Spaniard, coach Michael Laudrup has a fully-fit squad to choose from as he attempts to garner some momentum before the season’s close.
