EARLY TEAM NEWS

Speaking to iFollow Latics at the Wigan Athletic Training Centre on Monday morning ahead of Latics' Sky Bet Championship clash with Swansea City on Tuesday evening at the DW Stadium, assistant manager Leam Richardson said his side are almost at full strong in terms of options, with only Gavin Massey in the treatment room, whilst Dan Burn continues to step up his recovery.

Will Grigg returned from a minor groin complaint as a substitute on Saturday, with Callum McManaman alongside him on the bench after a slight knock of his own.

Richardson said:

"We've been without a few players over the last couple of weeks, but that's why we've got a strong squad.

"It's a very tight knit group and we all want each other to do well which is a great headache for the management team to have.

"Callum McManaman and Will Grigg are back available as they were at the weekend, but we've got a number of players determined to get into the team and do well for each other.

"Dan Burn is desperate to get back, he's worked tirelessly with the physios since he got the injury. He was back out on the grass last week.

"Dan did so well last season and that prompted the move he's got, but he's certainly determined to get back in amongst our lads and help the club."

SWANSEA CITY

The Swans saw timely returns for creative spark Bersant Celina and captain Leroy Fer in their 3-0 victory over Queens Park Rangers on Saturday, the latter an unused substitute, but nevertheless back in the picture following a groin injury.

Courtney Baker-Richardson returned from suspension to score in the home win, with Martin Olsson, Barrie McKay and Wayne Routledge all rotated to miss out on the starting XI.

Youngster Joel Asoro has an ankle injury following an awkward challenge during an appearance for Swansea's U23s against Villarreal B last week.

Longer term injuries include Jefferson Montero (thigh) and Wilfried Bony (knee), whilst Luciano Narsingh hasn't featured at all so far since the Swans' relegation from the Premier League.

Wigan Athletic extended their DW Stadium unbeaten run in the Sky Bet Championship to six games as Paul Cook’s side played out a 0-0 draw on Tuesday evening.

It could have been better for Latics, who saw Will Grigg denied by a late save from Kristoffer Nordfeldt, but in the same breath the visitors also went close to a late winner.

Cook was forced into one change from Saturday’s 1-0 defeat to Norwich City as Darron Gibson replaced Samy Morsy in the starting XI, the skipper missing out on a 300th career appearance with a slight hamstring strain.

The visitors were methodical in their play and were well-drilled by boss Graham Potter as Latics negated the early threat of their visitors thanks to blocks from Reece James and Cedric Kipre and a save from Christian Walton.

Kipre was actually the first Latics player to go close to scoring as he fired over from a Lee Evans corner after Nick Powell, who was wearing the captain’s armband on his 200th career appearance, had seen a shot blocked.

Walton was on hand again to deny Joe Rodon from 25 yards on 23 minutes before Latics went close themselves through Jacobs, who fired wide from a Reece James pull back.

Swansea’s best chance for a first-half goal fell to Conor Roberts, though, as he went through one-on-one with Walton, though the keeper stood strong to protect his clean sheet.

After the restart, Latics were almost immediately in front as Jacobs met a Powell cross at the back post but fired off target.

At the other end, former Latic Jay Fulton was denied by a Kipre block before Oli McBurnie volleyed over from the edge of the area.

Roberts and Fer had further efforts off target for the visitors before Grigg was presented with a golden opportunity. Matt Grimes tried to find his goalkeeper but Grigg read the pass and intercepted to give himself a one-on-one opportunity, though Nordfeldt stood strong to save his side.

Grigg and McBurnie had late chances for their respective sides in what turned out an entertaining 0-0 draw.

Wigan Athletic: Walton; James, Dunkley, Kipre, Robinson; Gibson (Connolly 77), Evans; Jacobs, Powell (Capt) (McManaman 83), Windass; Garner (Grigg 54)
Subs: Jones, Bruce, Roberts, Naismith.

Swansea City: Nordfeldt, van der Hoorn (Capt), McBurnie, Celina, Carroll (Olsson 51), McKay (Fer 64), Grimes, Rodon, Roberts, Naughton, Fulton (Routledge 72)
Subs: Mulder, Carter-Vickers, James, Baker-Richardson.
