Wigan have received a boost in their Barclays Premier League relegation battle with the news winger Victor Moses has not fractured his jaw and could be fit to face Stoke at the weekend.
Moses was forced off before half-time but scans allayed initial fears about the severity of the injury.
Wigan boss Roberto Martinez told www.wiganlatics.co.uk: "We got him checked out straight away in the hospital because there was the potential for a fractured bone in his face.
"The results came back really positive and there was no fracture, which allows us to treat him. We will see within the next few days whether he is available for selection on Saturday."
