Speaking to iFollow Latics at the Wigan Athletic Training Centre on Monday morning, Latics boss Paul Cook gave the latest team news ahead of his side's Sky Bet League One trip to Bristol Rovers on Tuesday evening.

WIGAN ATHLETIC

Nick Powell (hamstring) and Nathan Byrne (calf) are available for selection following minor lay-offs for Latics' 1-0 victory over Rochdale on Saturday, with captain Samy Morsy set to return to the starting XI following a two-game suspension for picking up 10 yellow cards.

Powell limped off during Latics' 1-0 win against Manchester City in the Emirates FA Cup, whilst Byrne felt his calf following the victory last Monday. The almost ever-present right back trained on Sunday ahead of Tuesday night's match.

Cook also confirmed that everyone involved on Saturday at the DW Stadium came through unscathed.
