Latics return home to the DW Stadium for the first time since beating Rotherham United 1-0 before the international fixtures at the start of September, with eyes firmly set on bouncing back from Saturday's 2-0 defeat away at Brentford.

It's the first of two home fixtures this week, with Hull City and our former goalkeeper Nigel Adkins visiting on Tuesday evening, before Bristol City arrive at the DW on Friday night.

Adkins' Tigers come into the game off the back of an impressive performance and 2-0 victory at home to Ipswich Town at the weekend, with a trip to Reading ahead of them this week on Saturday.

EARLY TEAM NEWS

Latics could see a starting return for midfielder Darron Gibson who featured from the bench for the first time since picking up an injury on the opening day of the season against Sheffield Wednesday, with the former Manchester United, Everton and Sunderland midfielder likely to step in for the Samy Morsy if his suspension is upheld following his red card against Brentford FC on Saturday.

Latics boss Paul Cook confirmed the club will be appealing the decision, but it is yet to be known whether Morsy will be involved on Tuesday.

Michael Jacobs will also be available for selection following his return to the bench after injury. Joe Garner also continued his involvement with another appearance from the bench at Griffin Park, whilst Will Grigg went unused following his time away on international duty with Northern Ireland.

Dan Burn and Gavin Massey remain sidelined, with the latter out for long term and Burn due to return to training this week.

Nigel Adkins has two injury concerns ahead of Tuesday night's game, with Daniel Batty a doubt with a knee injury following a knock during Hull's 2-0 win against Ipswich Town on Saturday, whilst Stephen Kingsley is to be assessed due to a knock to his ribs.

On loan Aston Villa defender Tommy Elphick is likely to continue in defence following on from his debut clean sheet on Saturday, with Chris Martin set to be involved in the 18-man squad after his debut from the bench on loan from Derby County.

Latics got back to winning ways in the Sky Bet Championship as goals from Samy Morsy and Josh Windass in the first-half were enough to beat Hull City at the DW Stadium on Tuesday night.

Jarrod Bowen’s goal just before half-time set up a tense second-half for Paul Cook’s side but they held firm and perhaps should have extended their lead.

Cook made two changes from Saturday’s defeat to Brentford, with Will Grigg and Michael Jacobs returning to the starting XI in place of James Vaughan and Callum Connolly, who made way to the bench. Callum McManaman was a late withdrawal from the squad due to injury, alas Owen Evans was Latics’ substitute goalkeeper as an academy graduate in the squad.

The visitors actually started the better of the two sides; former Latics Nouha Dicko robbed Cedric Kipre of possession and had a chance to open the scoring only to be denied by a vital interception from Chey Dunkley.

Moments later, Lee Evans was caught in possession by Kevin Stewart and Dicko broke again, but this time he fired over.

From then on, Latics got a strong grip on the game and Will Grigg was agonizingly close to diverting a superb Reece James cross home before captain Morsy got Latics’ opener.

The Egyptian – fresh off seeing his red card at Griffin Park on Saturday overturned – collected the ball in midfield before driving home from 25 yards, leaving David Marshall in the Hull goal with no chance.

Three minutes had passed before Jacobs almost doubled the advantage as he cut in from the left and curled a shot from the edge of the area only to see Marshall tip his effort around the post.

The second did come eight minutes before the break, though as Evans curled an inviting cross to the back post for Windass to notch his first goal for Latics against his Dad Dean’s former club.

Latics were in for an uncomfortable second half, though, as Bowen got in between Latics’ defence and Christian Walton and tucked home on the stroke of half-time.

That goal created a nervy start to the second half for Cook’s side and Dicko forced Walton into a save on the hour mark as he hit a powerful volley towards goal from a Chris Martin knock down.

Latics then settled and had opportunities for a third as Windass fired wide from the rebound after Powell had a left foot shot saved inside the area.

Jacobs was then denied by Marshall from a header before Dunkley blocked from Fraizer Campbell at the other end as the game began to open up.

Antonee Robinson and Jacobs both forced Marshall into further saves in the closing stages but in the end Latics held on and secured another DW Stadium victory and moved onto 13 points from their opening eight games.

Wigan Athletic: Walton; James, Dunkley, Kipre, Robinson; Morsy (Capt), Evans; Windass (Naismith 82), Powell (Vaughan 89) Jacobs; Grigg (Gibson 65).
Subs: Evans, Byrne, Connolly, Garner.

Hull City: Marshall; Lichaj, Elphick, de Wijs; Kingsley; Stewart (Grosicki 74), Henriksen (Capt), Bowen, Irvine; Dicko (Campbell 61), Martin (Evandro 85)
Subs: Long, Burke, Kane, Keane.
