Gary Caldwell: Wigan captain ready to make return

The Scotland international has played just one match since the beginning of April due to a hip injury.

With Maynor Figueroa, Antolin Alcaraz and Ivan Ramis already sidelined, Caldwell's return will be a huge boost to Wigan's bid to beat the drop.

"All you can do when you're out of the team is keep working hard and being ready for when the opportunity arises again," Caldwell told the Wigan Evening Post.

"Everyone in this squad has a massive role to play between now and the end of the season.

"Everyone has to be ready for when the gaffer decides it's right to go in, and that's definitely the case with me."

The Latics are five points adrift of safety with four games remaining, but Caldwell insists the club have not given up hope.

"We're looking at every game between now and the end of the season as one we have to win, and we believe we can do that," he said.

"We've been down there and managed to get out of it for the last few years, and we're bracing ourselves for it going all the way again.

"It's in our hands, and we have to have a real belief that we can still get out of it."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
