The latest team news and injury updates from the Wigan Athletic Training Centre ahead of Latics' Sky Bet League One clash trip to Southend United on Saturday 10 February.
Latics boss Paul Cook said the whole squad will travel to Southend United, including deadline day signing Devante Cole, returning defender Donervon Daniels and winger Gavin Massey, who weren't involved in the squad for the 2-0 win against Gillingham at the DW Stadium last weekend.
Massey was given extra rest for the fixture, allowing him to recuperate after the busy winter fixture schedule.
Jordan Flores and Shaun MacDonald are the only two players unavailable for selection, but both have stepped up their rehabilitation processes this week.

Shrimpers boss Chris Powell told southendunited.co.uk that defender John White will be missing for six weeks following an ankle injury in Southend's 1-0 win against Peterborough United.
Josh Wright and Sam Mantom remain side lined with longer term injuries, but Powell revealed that they are both now only a couple of weeks away from returns.
