The cost of victory

20 February 2013

Three players injured at Stevenage

Latics were today counting the cost of their npower League One victory at Stevenage.

Three players - Carl Winchester, Cliff Byrne and James Wesolowski - all had to be substituted through injury during the 2-1 win at the Lamex Stadium.

Winchester sustained a nasty blow to his ankle early in the match and soldiered on until half time.

The way the join swelled was a cause for concern with Caretaker Manager Tony Philliskirk fearing ligament damage may be a distinct possibility.

Byrne came off in the second half through a groin problem.

And substitute Wesolowski found himself substituted after complaining about a tight hamstring so he was withdrawn as a precaution.
