MARK Davies is a doubt for this weekend’s derby against Wigan Athletic with a groin problem.

The midfielder had featured in all but one of the Whites’ last eight games but limped out of the 1-0 victory over Blackpool after an hour.

Dougie Freedman explained after the game that the 26-year-old was withdrawn for precautionary reasons.

“He had a bit of cramp in his groin. I tried to give him a bit of extra time in the second half but there were a couple of moments where I was looking concerned, so I couldn’t take the risk.”
