Lopez faces long Latics lay-off

Next Story

Wigan boss Roberto Martinez has revealed defender Adrian Lopez could be sidelined for 10 weeks with the hamstring tear he suffered in Saturday's defeat at Norwich.

James McCarthy's ankle problem, sustained in the same game, appears to have been only a short-term setback, but for Lopez the verdict was far from encouraging.

Martinez told the Wigan Evening Post: "We are waiting on the results of another scan, but Adrian has a tear to his hamstring and it will probably be between six and 10 weeks."
