Missing: Diame out for Villa game
Midfielder Mohamed Diame is Wigan's only absentee for the visit of Aston Villa in the Barclays Premier League.
The Frenchman is still a week or two away from regaining full fitness from a knee injury sustained last month.
A number of the players who impressed manager Roberto Martinez in last week's FA Cup victory over Hull could come into consideration. Serbia goalkeeper Vladimir Stojkovic, on loan from Sporting Lisbon, may be included in the squad after receiving his work permit.
Provisional squad: Kirkland, Pollitt, Bramble, Scharner, Melchiot, Boyce, Figueroa, N'Zogbia, Sinclair, Gomez, Thomas, Rodallega, Koumas, Amaya, Scotland, McCarthy, Edman, Watson, Stojkovic.
