Wheater reveals Wembley luck

With Zat Knight injured, the former Middlesbrough player looks set to face Stoke in the FA Cup semi-final.

Yet Wheater was on the fringes of being Cup-tied, only for Tony Mowbray to suddenly withdraw him from the team to face Burton.

Wheater told the Bolton News: "I came in with my tracksuit on the Friday ready to play before the manager told me that the deal had been done so I wasn't travelling to Burton.

"He told me to take the weekend off. But on Monday I was back at Boro because nothing had been finalised."
