Jordi Gomez: Wigan midfielder after his clash with Bobby Zamora

Midfield duo James McCarthy and Jordi Gomez have both been given the all-clear to take on the Lions after picking up knocks in Sunday's 1-1 draw at QPR.

Martinez told the Evening Post: "Everyone is fit and raring to go as you can well imagine.

"Jordi has a couple of scratches on his head from the incident that saw Bobby Zamora sent off at QPR.

"He also had a really nasty challenge on his ankle in the second half, which fortunately didn't do too much damage.

"I don't expect him to be out for any length of time - and that is what tends to happen in Wembley week.

"Any bump or bruise that would ordinarily have caused a problem mysteriously disappears for some reason."

t's a bloody good goal, though. Sh!t, the kid's gonna be the worlds best before we know it, isn't he? He's got the touch of genius in him. Like Neymar, but with muscles and stuff. He's doing a Ronaldo as we watch. He's bulked up to be able to ride the tackles, but he's improved technically as well. His touch is sublime. Bugger.
