VETERAN Wigan Athletic goalkeeper Mike Pollitt has joined Barnsley on a month’s loan.

The 41-year-old is expected to feature for the Yorkshire outfit tonight in their Capital One Cup match at home against Southampton.

Pollitt has not featured for Latics since the FA Cup third round replay at Bournemouth earlier this year.

He was forced off through injury in that game and hasn’t featured since.
