Sheffield Wednesday are set to still be without captain Tom Lees for their Sky Bet Championship clash with Wigan at Hillsborough.
Lees has made a number of aborted attempts at a comeback from a hamstring strain and while he is back in training, boss Garry Monk has indicated this Saturday will likely come too soon for his playing return.
However there is better news for Monk with Steven Fletcher pushing to return after missing the midweek loss at Hull with an ankle injury.
Sam Hutchinson picked up his fifth yellow card of the campaign at the KC Stadium and will be suspended.
Wigan’s Anthony Pilkington will hope for a further opportunity after marking his recovery from injury by coming off the bench to score the winner against Birmingham in midweek.
It was the former Huddersfield, Norwich and Cardiff player’s first goal for the club and his first appearance since suffering a quad injury on the opening day of the season.
Josh Windass will also hope to continue after playing the full 90 minutes on his return from a calf problem.
Michael Jacobs is out again with a hamstring injury while Gary Roberts and Tom Pearce are still working on their rehabilitation after long-term setbacks.
