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.
