WIGAN Athletic’s injury misery has continued with news Chris McCann faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

The Irishman was forced to quit Sunday’s FA Cup quarter-final against Manchester City at half-time after a bone-crunching collision with Micah Richards.

And boss Uwe Rosler has confirmed McCann suffered “multiple fractures to his patella”, calling the news “catastrophic” for both player and club.

Latics have already lost Ben Watson for the rest of the season, to a double leg break sustained against Barnsley last month.
