Martin O’Neill has revealed that big John Carew is in the squad for our game against Steve ‘Mr Potato Head’ Bruce’s Wigan Athletic.

O’Neill told the official site: ‘John played 45 minutes in a behind-closed-doors friendly against Derby and is feeling good.

So did Wilfred Bouma, but he is obviously not quite there yet.

O’Neill revealed ‘Marlon picked up an injury – on his instep – this week so John comes in and that’s good news.

Adding – ‘He hasn’t had much match practice but it’s still very encouraging. Offensively, it’s very positive for us.’

If he can make the impact from the bench he did when we played Wigan at the JJB it could prove a big boost for us!!!
