Wigan have Lee Evans available for the Sky Bet Championship visit of fourth-placed Swansea.
Wales midfielder Evans has not started for the Latics since the end of September because of a calf problem.
Josh Windass has also been troubled by a calf issue but is also expected to return after being omitted from Sunday’s 2-2 draw at Bristol City.
Joe Williams should shrug off a groin problem to feature, but Charlie Mulgrew (hamstring) is likely to be missing for the second successive game.
Swansea’s derby hero Ben Wilmot is set for a run in the first-team after scoring the winner against Welsh rivals Cardiff.
On-loan Watford defender Wilmot stepped in for the injured Joe Rodon last weekend, and the Wales international has been ruled out for three months after undergoing ankle surgery on Tuesday.
Right-back Connor Roberts, a surprise omission for the derby victory, will be hoping for a recall but Swans boss Steve Cooper could name an unchanged side.
Summer signing Aldo Kalulu is training again following the ankle injury that has kept him sidelined since August, but remains a few weeks away from first-team action.
