Simpson back for Latics

29 November 2012

Robbie provides cup lift

Robbie Simpson is set to return after injury to provide a lift for Latics as they prepare for Saturday's FA Cup with Budweiser, second-round tie against Doncaster Rovers.

Manager Paul Dickov has revealed Simpson (pictured), who has missed the last three games through a groin injury, is due back in full training tomorrow.

Simpson's availability will provide Dickov with added options, both midfield and attacking wise.

James Tarkowski is also due to resume training tomorrow after resting problems with both feet for almost a fortnight.

The need for the young central defender to return is heightened by Cliff Byrne being suspended on Saturday which leaves Latics short of cover at the back.
