The loss of McCarthy until January will be a big blow for Wigan
Wigan's James McCarthy will be out for at least two months after having surgery on the ankle he injured in last month's 1-1 draw with Bolton.
The 19-year-old midfielder was hurt after a tackle by Fabrice Muamba which Latics boss Roberto Martinez described as "not malicious but reckless."
"He is going to come back stronger and, physically, probably in a better situation than before," said Martinez.
"The most important thing is to see him back on the pitch with no problem."
Republic of Ireland international McCarthy joined Wigan from Hamilton in July 2009 and has made 11 appearances for Wigan so far this season.

"He has been sensational, sometimes it is hard to understand the age of James", said Martinez.
"He plays with a great maturity and understanding and the level of performance has been so consistent for a young man it shows you the quality he has got.
"When he comes back he will be stronger and ready to make a real impact in the rest of the season."
The news on defender Emmerson Boyce is slightly better.
The 31-year-old is recovering from a pulled hamstring but should be back within 10 days.
