SKY BET CHAMPIONSHIP
WEDNESDAY 13 FEBRUARY 2019
DW STADIUM
KICK-OFF 7.45PM

Latics return to the DW Stadium in search of a third consecutive home victory in the Sky Bet Championship following wins against Aston Villa and Queens Park Rangers in recent outings, and with a point in the bag from the weekend's 1-1 draw away at Rotherham United courtesy of Josh Windass' third goal in as many matches.

Stoke City arrive at the DW in a difficult run of form following the appointment of former Luton Town boss Nathan Jones, with three straight defeats to Preston North End, Hull City and most recently West Bromwich Albion without scoring a goal.

Latics' draw at the New York Stadium on Saturday has Paul Cook's side seven points clear of the relegation zone in 19th, whilst the Potters sit five points above in 17th.

HEAD-TO-HEAD - LEAGUE

Head to Head Wigan Athletic v Stoke City

EARLY TEAM NEWS

Apart from Saturday's captain Danny Fox, it's a clean bill of health for Wigan Athletic against Stoke City at the DW Stadium on Wednesday evening.

The defender, who joined Latics last month from Nottingham Forest, suffered a head injury in the first half against Rotherham United on Saturday and lost consciousness, meaning he will only be cleared for selection when Latics face Ipswich Town on 23 February.

Lee Evans, who missed out on Saturday's game due to illness, is now back in training, whilst club captain Samy Morsy's suspension has now been served.

Nick Powell, who was due to be named on the bench against Rotherham but had to return home for the birth of his second child, will be available for selection as expected.

Beni Baningime made his Latics debut against the Millers and will be looking to make a claim for a starting place again against Stoke, whilst Jonas Olsson was included in the match day squad for the first time and will also be looking to push for a place in the team.

Gavin Massey, who returned from injury as a late substitute in Saturday's 1-1 draw, will be hoping to claim more minutes.

Paul Cook’s Latics battled to another important Sky Bet Championship point as they drew 0-0 with Stoke City at the DW Stadium on Wednesday night.

It could have been more for Cook’s side after they created plenty of openings in the early stages of the game but as the game wore on and Tom Ince twice fired efforts narrowly off target, there is no doubting a point was well-earned and satisfactory.

Latics made two changes for the clash with the Potters as captain Samy Morsy and defender Cedric Kipre came in for Beni Baningime and Danny Fox. Fox missed out after suffering a head injury against Rotherham United last weekend.

Lee Evans returned to the squad following illness and Nick Powell made the squad after his late withdrawal from the bench on Saturday.

Latics started brightly with Nathan Byrne breaking well on the right and crossing for Michael Jacobs, who fired wide at the back post.

Soon after, Jacobs got in behind after good interplay between Josh Windass and Leon Clarke, but he was denied by Jack Butland, who made a smart save at his near post.

Cook’s side continued to dominate the play as Chey Dunkley headed a difficult effort off target from a Reece James corner.

However, Stoke grew into the game and at the other end Jamie Jones made a strong save from a Ryan Woods free-kick from the edge of the area.

Kal Naismith was then in the thick of the action as the Scot dived in bravely after tracking Joe Allen to the near post, to deny the Wales international an opener.

Another James delivery then caused problems for the visitors and when his corner came back to him, his driving effort was cleared off the line by Sam Vokes when it looked destined for the top corner.

On the stroke of half-time, Ince broke on Latics’ right and provided a dangerous delivery but Kipre did well to divert it behind for a corner off the outside of the post.

After the restart, James tested Butland with a rasping 25-yard drive, but from the hour mark the Potters took control.

Ince twice fired narrowly off target in a dangerous spell for Stoke, which resulted in their best chance falling to substitute James McClean. The former Latic raced in behind on the left of the penalty area and found himself one-on-one with Jones, but the Republic of Ireland international fired wide at the near post.

Latics forced Butland into another save in a brief reprieve as Naismith curled a 25 yard free-kick powerfully into the grasp of the goalkeeper, low at his near post.

After some late pressure on their penalty area, Latics will be pleased with the point, which retains a six-point buffer above the Sky Bet Championship relegation zone.

Latics: Jones, Byrne, Dunkley, Kipre, Naismith, Morsy (Capt), James, Pilkington (Massey 65), Windass (Powell 72), Jacobs, Clarke (Garner 79)
Subs: Walton, McManaman, Olsson, Evans.

Stoke City: Butland, Allen, Ince, Etebo, Afobe (McClean 59), Vokes, Batth (Capt), Martins Indi, Clucas, Edwards (Bauer 36), Woods
Subs: Federici, Williams, Shawcross, Berahino, Bojan
