Emile Heskey could make his eagerly-awaited Wigan comeback at Liverpool on Wednesday.

The England forward has been plagued by injury this season and has missed the Latics entire festive programme so far with a sprained ankle, but manager Steve Bruce confirmed the former Liverpool star will train on Monday and is hopeful Heskey will be available for the trip to Anfield.

"I expect Emile to be fit," said Bruce. "We have to see how he trains over the next couple of days and obviously, with the injuries he has sustained, it will be vital we don´t rush him too much."
