LONDON, Sept 30 AFP - Wigan coach Shaun Wane on Monday revealed captain Sean O'Loughlin would go for another scan as he aimed to prove his fitness in time to lead Wigan in Saturday's Super League grand final.

The loose forward has played in only one of his club's past 11 Super League matches due to knee and achilles injuries and has been wearing a surgical boot for a month.

However, O'Loughlin demonstrated his importance to the Wigan team when he shrugged off the injuries to feature in last month's Challenge Cup final at Wembley, where he led his side to a 16-0 victory over Hull.

Wane is desperate to have his influential skipper on the field against Warrington at Old Trafford.

"We'll check on him today," Wane said. "He's having another scan and we'll run him tomorrow (Tuesday) and see how he is.

"I'd like to know tomorrow if I could but, if he needs another day, then so be it. If we can get him on the field, then we will."
