Latics were hoping to find out the extent of the groin problem which kept Nick Powell out of the 2-1 loss to Norwich in midweek as they slipped to second bottom in the table.

Both Craig Morgan and David Perkins were absent from that trip due to hamstring problems and neither has featured since before the international break.

Though Reece James (ankle), Andy Kellett (knee), Kyle Knoyle (elbow) and Donervon Daniels (knee) are all still sidelined, Nathan Byrne could come into consideration for his full debut.

Austrian defender Michael Madl returns from suspension for Fulham.

Madl sat out the midweek home draw with Burton following his red card against Birmingham and was replaced by debutant Ragnar Sigurdsson.

Ryan Sessegnon keeps his place at left-back after the 16-year-old scored Fuham’s last-gasp equaliser on Tuesday night.

Winger Floyd Ayite may need a fitness check after he limped off at the end while full-back Ryan Fredericks is still out with an ankle injury.
