Football - Powell doubt for Latics

Wigan's top scorer Nick Powell could miss the Sky Bet Championship fixture with Charlton.

PA Sport Report

The Manchester United loanee picked up a hamstring strain in the draw at Middlesbrough in midweek and, after suffering from a similar problem over the festive period, boss Uwe Rosler may exercise caution.

Midfielder Josh McEachran is still waiting to make his Latics debut after arriving on loan from Chelsea, although Rosler did say his first couple of weeks would be spent solely on a training programme.

Rosler had cited some minor injury problems in his squad, and winger Callum McManaman missed the trip to Boro, but the German insisted any problems were not serious. The likes of Scott Carson (thigh), Gary Caldwell (Achilles) and Shaun Maloney (shoulder) remain out, though.
