Wigan Athletic striker Emile Heskey is set to shake off his hamstring scare and play in Sunday`s derby match at the Reebok against Horwich RMI

Latics boss Steve Bruce has said that Heskey trained this last couple of days and should be ok for Sunday to lead the line

Bruce describes Heskey as his talisman and it is obvious that when the big man plays the whole team gets a lift just by his shear presence on the pitch

The weekend is a big game for both clubs and hopefully Latics can build on their performance and the result gained against City, three points on Sunday and surely we can start to head for mid table obscurity

How important do you think Heskey is to the Latics?
