Wigan have confirmed that Steve Bruce will take over as manager on Monday.

He has been ruled out of taking charge of the Latics for Saturday´s trip to Barclays Premier League leaders Arsenal due to a lack of time to prepare the squad.

As long ago as Monday, Wigan chairman Dave Whelan confirmed Bruce was to join the strugglers after opting to leave Birmingham, but a hitch in his departure from St Andrews meant that it was not until Friday afternoon that he could be confirmed in his new role at the JJB Stadium.
