BEN Watson is targeting a sensational return to the Wigan Athletic fold against Tottenham at the DW Stadium this weekend.

The midfielder has been out for five months with a badly-broken leg sustained at Liverpool in mid-November.

But he has come through two reserve-team matches unscathed – 45 minutes against Huddersfield and then the full 90 against Manchester City last Friday – and insists he is ready to go if called upon.

“I’ve had no reaction, no setback, so far which is great,” Watson told the Wigan Observer.
