Rodallega escaped lengthy spell out because of special fitness plans at Wigan

Wigan manager Roberto Martinez has revealed Hugo Rodallega escaped a season-long injury because of a special fitness plan at the DW Stadium.

The striker damaged his knee when caught by a challenge from Everton's Denis Stracqualursi last Saturday.

There were fears he was out for a lengthy spell with a ligament injury. But scans have shown there is nothing more than bruising.

Martinez said: ``We do a lot of work on injury prevention and Hugo has been doing that.

``It helped him because after that challenge his knee reacted well and he has not got a major injury.

``It is impossible to give a time frame when he will be back, but the news after the scan was good.

``We are relying on how his knee settles. He can not put any weight on it and he is on crutches.''
