The injury list continues to shrink at pace as Alan Smith, Xisco, Cacapa and Viduka make an appearance against Wigan Reserves at SJP. Chris Hughton said:

“We`ll field a strong team against Wigan. The game is at St James`s Park, and as we`ve not got a first-team game at the weekend, it`s a perfect opportunity for them to play. I would think Mark Viduka, Alan Smith, David Edgar, Cacapa, Kazenga LuaLua and Xisco will all be involved.

And if we can get a few through the turnstiles, then all the better. The nice thing is now we`ve got a two-week period to build towards the Everton game, and to have these players coming back is a bonus.”
