The Latics, for once, have a clean bill of health for the visit of League One strugglers Stevenage on Saturday. Charlie MacDonald is back in full training after missing the last seven games. The club have missed his goals and have not won in the league since he last scored against Shrewsbury back in November.
MacDonald admitted, “It has been a long time coming. I have had a tough time with injuries and it has been a stop-start season for me. It is our biggest test of the season (Stevenage) so far. You get the cliché that the next game is always the biggest one — but this really is huge.”
