Apart from Saturday's captain Danny Fox, it's a clean bill of health for Wigan Athletic against Stoke City at the DW Stadium on Wednesday evening.

The defender, who joined Latics last month from Nottingham Forest, suffered a head injury in the first half against Rotherham United on Saturday and lost consciousness, meaning he will only be cleared for selection when Latics face Ipswich Town on 23 February.

Lee Evans, who missed out on Saturday's game due to illness, is now back in training, whilst club captain Samy Morsy's suspension has now been served.

Nick Powell, who was due to be named on the bench against Rotherham but had to return home for the birth of his second child, will be available for selection as expected.

Beni Baningime made his Latics debut against the Millers and will be looking to make a claim for a starting place again against Stoke, whilst Jonas Olsson was included in the match day squad for the first time and will also be looking to push for a place in the team.

Gavin Massey, who returned from injury as a late substitute in Saturday's 1-1 draw, will be hoping to claim more minutes.
