The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

WI­GAN boss Gary Cald­well is con­fi­dent de­fender Reece Burke will bounce back from in­jury sooner than ex­pected.

The West Ham United loa­nee, 20, un­der­went surgery on a her­nia this week and could miss a month.

But with Alex Gil­bey’s an­kle in­jury bet­ter than at first feared, Cald­well is not too down­hearted.

“Reece should be out for three or four weeks,” he said. “The type of lad he is, hope­fully he’ll be back by the ear­lier date.

“The full ex­tent we’re not en­tirely sure about, but so far it’s pos­i­tive news (for Gil­bey). Hope­fully he’ll be back soon and he’ll be bet­ter for it.”
