M'voto on the mend

4 October 2012

Jean-Yves ankle improving

Jean-Yves M'voto's ankle injury will be assessed tomorrow before a decision is made as to whether Latics' central defender will play in Saturday's home npower League One against Preston North End.

The Frenchman limped out of Tuesday's win at Crewe Alexandra after turning his ankle in the opening period.

Paul Dickov explained M'voto has not damaged ligaments and the injury is responding well to treatment.

Latics' manager, mindful that M'voto previously had a serious ankle injury, says he won't be risked unless he is fully fit.

"If he is not fit, young James Tarkowski will play as he came on and did ever so well in the second half at Crewe," he said.
