New MacDonald injury worry

Charlie back on the sidelines

Charlie MacDonald has suffered a new injury setback.

Just back from a lay off caused by an ankle problem, the striker (pictured) was ruled out of yesterday's draw against Bradford City through a thigh strain.

Lee Johnson explained that MacDonald felt his thigh tighten after taking a shot in training.

Latics' manager says the 32-year-old MacDonald will be given a precautionary scan.

Johnson hopes MacDonald will be given the all clear adding the worst-case scenario is that he will be out a couple of weeks.

"It is a big disappointment as Charlie has not been fit enough this season as he is a big player for us," he said.
