Coppell recalled Lita from his loan at Charlton this week and said: "Leroy has been recalled because the other strikers I have here have not been scoring goals.
"He is a different trainer to the one who went away on loan. There is a visible change in his mentality.
"I have been speaking regularly to Alan Pardew and the reports I've had on Leroy have been positive. The past is the past. He has got the bit between his teeth. He will play at Wigan and all that matters now is that Reading FC are in the Premier League next season."
