Wigan Athletic

Uwe Rosler has vowed not to make wholesale changes to Wigan's starting line-up against Fulham.

Latics ended a run of four straight draws with an impressive win over leaders Derby and Rosler could stick to a similar XI, with midfielder Roger Espinoza firmly back in the frame after being left in the cold over the first few weeks of the season.

Wigan are still waiting on the long-awaited competitive returns of Ben Watson (broken leg) and Chris McCann (knee) and Rosler expects the midfield pair to be back on the bench in the coming weeks.

Skipper Emmerson Boyce (ankle) has not played in the previous four games since hobbling off at half-time against Nottingham Forest.


Hugo Rodallega returns to his old stomping ground with Fulham.

The Colombian striker was rested for Tuesday's Capital One Cup defeat by Derby, one of eight changes made by Kit Symons, and is set to lead the line against his former club.

Skipper Scott Parker, Dan Burn, Kostas Stafylidis, Lasse Vigen Christensen and Ross McCormack are also likely to return in what will be Symons' first match since he was confirmed as the club's permanent manager.

Fernando Amorebieta is expected to miss out again with a knee injury and Adam Taggart remains sidelined as he recovers from a groin problem.
