Ryan Fredericks suspended for Fulham's clash with Wigan

Fulham full-back Ryan Fredericks is suspended for the visit of Wigan.

Fredericks starts a three-match ban for his red card in the defeat at Birmingham which will also rule him out of the FA Cup clash with former club Tottenham next weekend.

Denis Odoi is likely to step in at right-back in place of Fredericks.

Scott Malone is pushing to return to the starting line-up at left-back after dropping to the bench at St Andrew's.

Wigan boss Warren Joyce still has a host of January recruits awaiting their Latics debuts.

Omar Bogle scored a brace on his maiden start in the 2-2 draw with Norwich, while James Weir was also named in the starting line-up for the first time.

But the likes of Matt Gilks, Mikael Mandron, Gabriel Obertan, Jack Byrne, Josh Laurent and Alex Bruce have been striving for match fitness.

Alex Gilbey and Reece James (both ankle) could be in contention but Nick Powell (hamstring) and Donervon Daniels (knee) are out.
