The latest ahead of Latics' Sky Bet Championship trip to Birmingham City.

  • Team News: Birmingham City v Latics.
  • "A couple of hiccups." - Paul Cook.
  • Harlee Dean ruled out for the hosts after hernia operation.

Paul Cook insists Latics are determined to end the 2018-19 season on a high after back-to-back victories secured our Sky Bet Championship status for another campaign and with that in mind, he's focused on having his best team available for the final two fixtures of the season.

"We've got a couple of hiccups and different things, but sometimes it's better to keep things closer to your chest.

"We have got one or two issues which will come out over the next week or so with a few injuries, the normal stuff with lads who might have been carrying knocks."

Latics have been without Anthony Pilkington, Callum McManaman and Michael Jacobs in recent weeks due to injuries.

Defender Cedric Kipre will be available for selection following his one-match suspension from Good Friday's victory at Leeds United.

For the hosts, Garry Monk revealed earlier this week on that ever-present defender Harlee Dean will not feature again this season after going in for a hernia operation.

Maikel Kieftenbeld is sidelined longer-term with a knee injury, whilst Connor Mahoney has missed the last two matches due to a slight hamstring issue.
