Wigan Athletic goalkeeper Chris Kirkland has been forced to cut short his loan at Doncaster Rovers due to injury.

Kirkland's injury jinx has struck again, forcing him to cut short a loan spell at Doncaster after only one appearance.

Kirkland's back problem flared up again, after Friday's 3-0 Championship defeat by Leeds.

After talks with Doncaster manager Dean Saunders, he made an early return to Wigan.
