‘A lengthy time’….

Wigan boss, Leam Richardson, has said: “Jordan Cousins is unfortunately going to be out for some time, a lengthy time. I think they (the medical experts) were talking about 16 weeks, he’s got to see the specialist again.

“It’s an issue with a tendon on his thigh, he’s obviously had an impact in there, I’m not sure if the tendon’s come away from the bone.”

Summer signing

Cousins moved to Wigan from Stoke City over the summer and has been a regular for the North West side since his switch.

He has made 13 appearances in all competitions and has helped Richardson’s side rise into the promotion picture.

Prior to his move to the DW Stadium, the 27-year-old also had spells at Charlton Athletic and QPR.
