Wigan skipper Melchiot set to miss season run-in

Wigan Athletic captain Mario Melchiot looks to have played his last game for the club this season after picking up an injury in the club's 0-0 draw with Reading on Saturday.

Melchiot was forced off in the first half at The JJB Stadium as The Latics secured the result that takes them a point closer to safety.

Their skipper will be missing as Wigan attempt to rubberstamp their top flight status though, according to Steve Bruce.

"He has had a scan and I think that he is out for the final two games," said Bruce on the club's official website.

"He has a small abductor tear and he hurt himself out there on the pitch.

"I cannot see him playing the remainder of the season."
