"We've got the usual bumps and bruises, but nothing that will keep anybody from playing on Tuesday night.

"The long term injuries are going concerns, but we showed on Saturday exactly why we built this squad into what it is, because when you have a few players out, you need what we got against West Brom."

Latics will continue to be without midfielder Darron Gibson who is serving the second game of his three-match suspension for his red card at Preston North End, whilst Will Grigg, Michael Jacobs and Gavin Massey all continue to recover from hamstring injuries.

Should Antonee Robinson feature on Tuesday he will be making his 50th career appearance, and if Cook opts for Dan Burn, the defender will be making his 100th Latics appearance in all competitions.
