Burke provides selection headache for AFC Fylde boss Challinor



Posted Thursday, November 30, 2017 by PA

AFC Fylde boss Dave Challinor will be forced to make at least one change for his side's FA Cup second-round clash with Wigan on Friday night.

Teenager Luke Burke is ruled out because he is currently on loan from the Latics, having starred in last weekend's 1-0 Vanarama National League win at leaders Dover.

National League top-scorer Danny Rowe, who scored the winner on the south coast, will line up again after coming off late on in the game as a precautionary measure.

Fellow striker Matthew Blinkhorn will be hoping to convince Challinor to give him a run from the start after coming off the bench at the Crabble.

Wigan will be at full strength for the short trip to Fylde as they look to build on last week's impressive 3-1 win at Rotherham.

Defender Daniel Burn is back available after missing the win over Rotherham having picked up his fifth booking of the season.

Midfielder Nick Powell is also set to return for the Latics having missed the last two games with a slight hamstring strain.

Wigan boss Paul Cook has no further injury concerns as his side look to avoid a giant-killing by their near neighbours.
