Antolin Alcaraz: Wigan defender suffered hamstring injury in West Ham defeat

Antolin Alcaraz: Wigan defender suffered hamstring injury in West Ham defeat

The centre-half damaged a hamstring and was substituted during the first half of Saturday's 2-0 defeat at West Ham - a result which kept Wigan in the bottom three of the Premier League with just five games of the season to play.

And Roberto Martinez faces the possibility of losing a player whose return from a previous injury in February coincided with an upturn in results.

The Latics manager told the Wigan Evening Post: "The injury to Antolin made for a very difficult afternoon for us at West Ham.

"He's got a soft tissue injury to the back of his hamstring, and so we'll assess him this week before discovering exactly how long he'll be out for.

"It's obviously a real negative note, and had an effect on how we wanted to play."

Alcaraz missed almost six months earlier this season with a groin problem, and Wigan have won five of nine games since his comeback.

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
