Latics injury update

19 August 2013

Clarke-Harris, Mellor on comeback trail

Jonson Clarke-Harris and David Mellor are on schedule to return after injury for Latics in Saturday's Sky Bet League 1 match against Port Vale at Boundary Park.

Striker Clarke-Harris (pictured) is making a speedy recovery after damaging ankle ligaments in the Capital One Cup tie against Derby County.

Mellor, likewise, has quickly overcome the hamstring problem which forced him to limp out of the home league game against Walsall.

The return of Clarke-Harris and Mellor would leave Carl Winchester as the only absentee from the first-team squad as he recovers from damaged knee ligaments.

Jose Baxter passed a fitness test to play at Peterborough, but afterwards was still feeling the effects of a groin strain.
