Winchester vying for start

26 September 2013

Youngster gives manager food for thought

Carl Winchester is vying for a starting spot for Latics' SkyBet League 1 match at Crawley Town on Saturday.

Manager Lee Johnson admitted 20-year-old Winchester has provided food for thought after an impressive display for the reserves in midweek at Fleetwood Town.

Winchester (pictured) was one of a number of squad players who impressed in the 3-0 victory in the Lancashire Senior Cup.

It was Winchester, however, who caught the manager's eye in the centre of midfield alongside Anton Rodgers.

"Carl played very well and is vying for a start on Saturday," explained Johnson.
