Wigan have a number of injury concerns ahead of taking on Fulham at the DW Stadium.

Latics were hoping to find out the extent of the groin problem which kept Nick Powell out of the 2-1 loss to Norwich in midweek as they slipped to second bottom in the table.

Both Craig Morgan and David Perkins were absent from that trip due to hamstring problems and neither has featured since before the international break.

Though Reece James (ankle), Andy Kellett (knee), Kyle Knoyle (elbow) and Donervon Daniels (knee) are all still sidelined, Nathan Byrne could come into consideration for his full debut.

Austrian defender Michael Madl returns from suspension for Fulham.

Madl sat out the midweek home draw with Burton following his red card against Birmingham and was replaced by debutant Ragnar Sigurdsson.

Ryan Sessegnon keeps his place at left-back after the 16-year-old scored Fuham's last-gasp equaliser on Tuesday night.

Winger Floyd Ayite may need a fitness check after he limped off at the end while full-back Ryan Fredericks is still out with an ankle injury.

If Fulham avoid defeat here it will be their longest ever unbeaten run against a single opponent in their league history (also 15 against Notts County).

Fulham are unbeaten away from home so far this season (W2 D1), their best start on the road since winning all three games in the 2000-01 season. However, the last time they remained unbeaten in their opening four away league games was 2010-11 (drawing all four).

Fulham's last three Championship goals have all come in the 86th minute or later, with the last two goals coming in second half injury time.
