Wigan boss Warren Joyce could miss their vital match against relegation rivals Blackburn after minor surgery.

The club said the surgeryexternal-link on Tuesday was "a minor but important procedure which required immediate attention."

Graham Barrow and Andy Welsh will take charge if the ex-Manchester United Under-21 boss does not attend the game.

Joyce, 52, was appointed by Wigan in November after Gary Caldwell was sacked five months after guiding the club to the League One title.
