Wigan boss Paul Cook could be boosted by the return of four players for the clash with Birmingham.
Midfield trio Josh Windass (calf), Gary Roberts and Anthony Pilkington (quad) are expected to be back in contention having resumed training after injury lay-offs.
Gavin Massey is also in contention having been rested for Latics’ 2-0 loss to Fulham.
Cook has confirmed that Michael Jacobs will be not risked after he was withdrawn at half-time against the Cottagers due to tightness in his hamstring.
Birmingham will have midfielder David Davis back in their squad.
Davis missed the Blues’ 3-2 defeat to Derby due to the birth of his child.
Manager Pep Clotet could also hand a first-team debut to midfielder Josh McEachran, who signed for the club last week.
The 26-year-old has made a handful of appearances for the Under-23s since leaving Brentford in June.
