Pow­ell to miss Rams meet­ing

Derby Telegraph - - SPORT -

WI­GAN Ath­letic will be with­out one of their key play­ers when they face Derby County to­day.

The Rams travel to the DW Sta­dium on the back of a 2-1 win over Swansea City last week and are only out­side of the play-off places on goal dif­fer­ence.

Wi­gan are cur­rently 15th in the ta­ble and come into the game on the back of a 1-1 draw with Bolton Wan­der­ers.

The Lat­ics have one of the best home records in the Cham­pi­onship, earn­ing 21 points from 10 games - only Leeds United and Nor­wich City can match that.

How­ever, man­ager Paul Cook will be with­out key mid­fielder Nick Pow­ell for the clash against the Rams.

The for­mer Manch­ester United mid­fielder joined the Lat­ics in the sum­mer of 2016 and so far this sea­son he has scored four goals and pro­vided five as­sists in 18 league matches so far.

Cook has con­firmed that the 24-year-old has suf­fered a ham­string in­jury and will spend a lengthy spell on the side­lines.
