TEAM NEWS

Team News Bury v Wigan Athletic

Latics have a fully fit squad to choose from ahead of the trip to the Energy Check Stadium, with only one absence in the form of Samy Morsy who continues to carry out his international duties with Egypt.

Midfielder Shaun MacDonald delivered a positive 90 minutes in the Central League Cup final against Mansfield Town on Tuesday, returning from a knee injury picked up in his previous return from a long-term broken leg.

Zeli Ismail hasn't featured for the Shakers since their clash with Oldham Athletic, with Eoghan O'Connell absent since January.

Striker Jermaine Beckford is Bury's long-term concern with a knee injury set to keep him out until next season.

Loan midfielder Josh Laurent is unavailable for Saturday's game due to Latics being his parent club.
