The big buzz around the ground ahead of yesterday’s clash against Brighton was ”where’s Yanic?”

Latics’ Dutch speed king wasn’t only missing from the starting line-up, he wasn’t on the bench either, surely he couldn’t have been left out could he? Perhaps he’d suffered an injury at Leeds on Tuesday that the club had kept quiet? No the reason was much more exciting and precious than that.

Yanic’s wife had given birth during the small hours and he’d obviously been with her, boss Gary Caldwell explains:

”Yanic’s wife gave birth overnight so he was up with her all night and wasn’t available”

”Obviously, there’s nothing you can do but I think he would really have been a threat today, he was meant to start and we had to change that this morning.”

Congratulations to Mr and Mrs Wildschut, all here at Vital Latics hope all is well and that you are back in the squad for next weekend.
