Tarkowski injury worry

25 November 2012

Defender to rest foot problem

James Tarkowski was ruled out of Latics' npower League One game against Shrewsbury Town through injury.

Paul Dickov revealed the teenage defender's absence was due to a foot problem.

Latics' manager explained Tarkowski (pictured), who was beset by foot problems while a trainee, had been complaining of discomfort for some weeks.

He added the decision has been taken to rest the player for between seven and 10 days.

Robbie Simpson was missing for a second successive game yesterday through a groin injury.

On a positive note, however, top scorer Jose Baxter and Cristian Montano will be back after suspension for Tuesday's rearranged league game at Doncaster Rovers.
