Wigan Athletic v Ipswich Town Ticket Details

WIGAN ATHLETIC

Latics arrive back home at the DW Stadium with a clean bill of health following the warm-weather training trip to Dubai last weekend, with Danny Fox now back available after sitting out the Stoke City match and full training due to the concussion he suffered in Latics' 1-1 draw away at Rotherham United.

A full squad to choose from leaves Paul Cook with a positive selection headache, with one man in particular determined to keep hold of a starting place as Michael Jacobs aims to make his 150th appearance for Latics in all competitions.

We're also joined by Josh Windass, Danny Fox, Gary Roberts and former Latics and Ipswich centre back Jason De Vos.



IPSWICH TOWN

Paul Lambert's touchline ban has added to Ipswich's recent woes, with a number of first team players out with long term injuries.

Former Latics midfielder Emyr Huws (knee), Tom Adeyemi (achilles), Grant Ward (ACL), Freddie Sears (ACL) and Jack Lankester (back) are all on the sidelines.

Lambert is hopeful of returns for James Collins (hamstring) and captain Luke Chambers (foot), with Collins missing the last four matches and Chambers out of the previous two.

Illness struck the Ipswich camp recently, with Flynn Downes missing recently but now doing better, whilst Cole Skuse made the bench last weekend against Stoke City after recovering from the same virus.

Ellis Harrison is also being monitored following a hamstring complaint.
