Captain Sam Morsy is back in contention after serving a suspension, while Lee Evans is fit again after a bout of illness. Nick Powell is expected to return to the squad after missing the Rotherham match to attend the birth of his second child.
Stoke have Charlie Adam (calf) back in training but it remains to be seen whether the veteran midfielder will be involved at the DW Stadium. Potters boss Nathan Jones felt his side lacked a cutting edge in defeat to West Brom at the weekend and he could bring Benik Afobe back into the team.
Saido Berahino is also an option for Jones, whose side have lost their last three Championship games without scoring a goal. Stoke will want some measure of revenge on Wednesday night following Wigan's surprise 3-0 win at the bet365 Stadium back in August.
Wigan are unbeaten in nine league games against Stoke (W3 D6) since a 0-2 defeat in May 2009.
Stoke's last away league win at Wigan was in their most recent visit there in the Championship, a 1-0 victory under Tony Pulis in the 2004-05 season.
Wigan boss Paul Cook and Stoke's Nathan Jones faced during the 2016-17 season in League One, with Cook's Portsmouth winning both games against Jones' Luton Town side.
Stoke haven't lost three consecutive away league games outside the top-flight since March 2006 under Johan Boskamp (five defeats in a row).
On-loan Wigan striker Leon Clarke has been involved in 22 goals in his last 28 home league starts (17 goals, 5 assists).
Manager Nathan Jones has lost his first two away Championship matches with Stoke, with the Potters attempting just 11 shots across those two games.
David Prutton predicts: 1-1 (5/1 with Sky Bet)
