Latics suffer Wesolowski blow

Oldham Athletic

Oldham have confirmed that James Wesolowski is set for a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

The midfielder underwent shoulder surgery on Monday and is likely to be out of action for the next 12 weeks.

The former Leicester and Peterborough player, who has dislocated his shoulder against Hartlepool and Exeter this season, was hoping to delay surgery until the end of the season, but it was deemed not possible.

Wesolowski has started 26 games this season, scoring four goals.
