Wigan will be without captain Sam Morsy when they resume their Championship campaign against Nottingham Forest.
The midfielder received his fifth yellow card of the season during the defeat at Sheffield Wednesday prior to the international break and he will serve a one-match ban.
Michael Jacobs should be nearing a return from a hamstring injury while Gary Roberts and Tom Pearce are still working on their rehabilitation after long-term setbacks.
The Latics will be looking for a third straight victory at the DW Stadium after wins against Charlton and Birmingham.
Forest, unbeaten in the Championship since the opening day of the season, will be hoping the two-week break has not disrupted their momentum.
Reds boss Sabri Lamouchi is hopeful that defender Michael Dawson (calf) will be back in contention, while midfielders Ryan Yates (knee) and Alfa Semedo (back) are close to returns.
It remains to be seen whether Samba Sow will be available after he limped off with a hamstring problem during the home win against Brentford.
Lamouchi must choose between Yuri Ribeiro and Jack Robinson to play at left-back while Albert Adomah and Sammy Ameobi will be hoping for recalls.
