UWE Rosler has confirmed that Latics captain Emmerson Boyce will miss the trip to Wolves tomorrow.

The defender was taken off at half-time during Tuesday’s game with Nottingham Forest after hurting his leg when going up for a corner.

He left the ground on crutches and has now been assessed ahead of the game at Molineux.

Boyce revealed in his Evening Post column today (Friday) that he was hoping to be back for tomorrow’s match but confirmed he would play no part for Barbados during the international break as a result of his injury.

“He is not available,” said Rosler. “I know’t know (how serious the injury is), we will scan him tomorrow.

“He’s not available and that’s all I can say at the moment. Tommorrow we will scan him and there is no point making speculation before we know the result.

“It’s part and parcel of being manager of a football team that at times you have injuries.”

Midfielder Don Cowie is also a doubt for the game.
