Chris Hughton reports no fresh injury worries after Thursday night's win against Bayer Leverkusen as we prepare for the visit of Wigan to the Lane on Sunday.

Teemu Tainio, Pascal Chimbonda and Aaron Lennon all returned to the starting line-up in the BayArena and have come through the UEFA Cup game unscathed.

It was midfielder Teemu'a first game in two months following hernia surgery. "Teemu did well to come back and then go on to play the full 90 minutes and he's come through fine," said Chris.

Paul Stalteri and Anthony Gardner (both knee) are improving but remain out while Chris hasn't ruled out a possible return for Jermaine Jenas after his calf problem.

"The three who have been on the treatment table - Jermaine Jenas, Paul Stalteri and Anthony Gardner - have all been making good progress," added Chris. "At the moment JJ is a doubt for Sunday but we certainly haven't ruled him out."
