Wigan's Darron Gibson could make his first start since the opening day of the season in the Sky Bet Championship home game against Hull on Tuesday night, live on Sky Sports.
Gibson returned to the bench in the weekend defeat at Brentford after recovering from a groin injury sustained on his debut for the club.
The former Manchester United and Sunderland midfielder is on standby as the Latics are waiting to learn whether their appeal against Sam Morsy's dismissal on Saturday has been successful. Defender Dan Burn (foot) and forward Gavin Massey (hamstring) are both still out.
Hull could be without Dan Batty and Stephen Kingsley, who both sustained injury in the weekend win against Ipswich. Batty was forced off with a knee problem and Kingsley is struggling with a rib injury. Both players are doubtful.
United States defender Eric Lichaj is pushing for a recall following his late return from international duty, while strikers Chris Martin and Nouha Dicko are also in contention. Defender Ondrej Mazuch is edging closer to a return to action after a long-term knee injury.
Wigan and Hull last faced in January 2011, with Wigan winning 3-2 at the KC Stadium in an FA Cup tie.
Hull haven't won an away league match at Wigan since October 1996, a 2-1 victory with goals from Richard Peacock and Simon Trevitt.

This is only the 17th league meeting played between Wigan and Hull - but the sides will have met in all four divisions of the Football League after this match.
Hull manager Nigel Adkins was in goal for Wigan Athletic when Hull won 1-0 in September 1991 in one of the Tigers' only two away league wins at Wigan.
In his two previous appearances against Hull in all competitions, Wigan's Callum McManaman has had a direct hand in all four goals his sides have scored, assisting Sunderland's opener in September 2017 (1-1), and scoring one and assisting two of Wigan's three goals back in January 2011 (3-2).
Both Wigan and Hull have lost five points from leading positions in the Championship this season, only Blackburn (7), Millwall (7) and Birmingham (6) have lost more.
David Prutton predicts: 2-2 (14/1 with Sky Bet)
