Last Updated: 01/02/19 11:51am
Wigan can add Danny Fox, Beni Baningime and Leon Clarke to their squad for the home game against QPR.
Defender Fox has signed from Nottingham Forest, midfielder Baningime joined on loan from Everton and striker Clarke arrived from Sheffield United.
Will Grigg left for Sunderland on Deadline Day but Anthony Pilkington could return from his bruised ankle. Nick Powell (calf) and Gavin Massey (hamstring) are making progress.
Massimo Luongo is back in contention for QPR after international duty. The midfielder has missed Rangers' last six matches after linking up with Australia at the Asian Cup.
Geoff Cameron (ankle), Tomer Hemed (hernia) and Angel Rangel (thigh) are set to miss out again. Defender Alex Baptiste has moved to Luton and young midfielder Ilias Chair has joined Stevenage on loan for the rest of the season.
Wigan have won none of their last 10 matches against QPR in all competitions (W0 D4 L6), losing the last four in a row.
QPR haven't conceded a goal in any of their last three visits to the DW Stadium against Wigan in all competitions - two goalless draws and a 1-0 win.
Wigan have won just one of their last 10 league games (D2 L7), beating Aston Villa 3-0 in January.
QPR have won just one of their last seven away league games (D3 L3), with that victory coming at Nottingham Forest in December last year.
Wigan's Joe Garner has netted three goals in his last five league games, having scored just once in his first 14 this season.
This will be QPR boss Steve McClaren's fifth league visit to Wigan - he has lost none of his previous four (W3 D1 L0), facing a different manager each time (Jewell, Coyle, Mackay, Joyce).
David Prutton predicts: 1-0 (13/2 with Sky Bet)
