Bruce: Wigan need left-back signing

Wigan Athletic boss Steve Bruce admits he's desperate to find a new left-back in January.

Bruce maintains Latics made a massive mistake in the summer not replacing Leighton Baines who signed for Everton.

Kevin Kilbane has been deputising - the Republic of Ireland star has played out of his skin and done well - but Bruce would clearly like to see Kilbane in a more accustomed midfield role.

He added: "I have been a huge admirer of Kevin's for years - he is a great pro and he gives everything but to start the season without a recognised left back was a huge mistake in my eyes."
