Wigan's Taylor in new injury blow

Taylor was in impressive form before his recent injury problems
Wigan full-back Ryan Taylor faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines after breaking his leg in a reserve game.

The England Under-21 international was playing against Newcastle as part of his rehabilitation, having broken the metatarsal bone in his foot in January.

But the 21-year-old was injured again during the 2-1 win, in which he scored.

He had surgery on Wednesday night and physio Alan Tomlinson told the club website: "It is broken above the ankle but he will make a full recovery."

Manager Paul Jewell, who signed Taylor from Tranmere for 700,000 last summer, added: "Everyone at the club is devastated for him.

"He has worked so hard to come back from a serious injury once and to have this second blow is a real knock-back for the lad.

"But Ryan is an absolutely top lad, a real worker with a fabulous attitude to his game and I have absolutely no doubts in my mind that he will come back stronger and even more determined to succeed.

"I have seen enough this season to suggest he can have a long career in football."

The club were unable to put a timescale on his recovery.
