Wigan Athletic manager Steve Bruce will have a fully-fit squad to choose from for Sunday's encounter against Arsenal.
Ryan Taylor and Kevin Kilbane look set to make their comebacks after the duo returned to fitness this week.
Taylor has been sidelined for a month after sustaining a rib injury, while Kilbane missed Saturday's draw at Manchester City with a foot problem.
And assistant manager Eric Black has confirmed that the pair will be available for the clash at The JJB Stadium against Premier League leaders Arsenal - a game that can be seen live on Sky Sports 1 from 3pm.
Black told the Evening Post: "Ryan was able to train with the squad for a couple of days before playing the reserve game, so he will be back in contention.
"Kevin seems a lot better. He trained on Tuesday and he should be okay for the weekend.
"He has had a badly bruised foot after kicking the bottom of someone's boot against Derby, which bruised the bone.
"It was a shame he picked up the injury just after we had managed to get him playing in his natural position.
"He had done a fantastic job at left-back all season but it was great to see him out on the wing again."
