Wigan defender Antolin Alcaraz is slightly ahead of schedule in his return from injury but manager Roberto Martinez will not rush him back.

The centre-back has not played since late August as first suspension and then a groin problem sustained on international duty with Paraguay have kept him sidelined. And while his recovery is progressing well Martinez is putting no pressure on the 30-year-old to return to a defence which has not kept a clean sheet since August 25.

"He's probably around five or six days ahead of where we thought he'd be at this stage, so in many ways we're pleased with that," the Spaniard told the Wigan Evening Post.
