Mellor injury

11 August 2013

Latics wait to discover severity

Latics are hopeful the hamstring injury sustained by David Mellor in yesterday's Sky Bet League 1 match against Walsall is not serious.

The central defender (pictured) limped off in the opening half of the game at Boundary Park.

Manager Lee Johnson said: "We are hoping it is not torn, but we will have to wait or see.

"It could be a couple of days or three weeks depending on the severity."

Johnson hinted the injury to Mellor could force him into the transfer market to bring in a loan player as a replacement.

* Mellor's training kit is still available for sponsorship. For more information, contact David Broadbent (0161 785 5153) or Jenny Warburton (0161 785 5152).
