West Brom v WIGAN: Bruce hopeful over duo for clash with Baggies

Stand by: Edman clashes with Bolton's Mustapha Riga at the JJB

Wigan manager Steve Bruce is hopeful defenders Mario Melchiot and Paul Scharnerwill be fit for tomorrow's trip to Barclays Premier League strugglers West Brom.

Club captain Melchiot was forced off at half-time of last Saturday's goalless draw with Bolton with a groin injury while Scharner followed him eight minutes into the second half with a knee problem.

Emmerson Boyce and Erik Edman, their replacements against Wanderers, stand by should either not be fit.

Provisional squad: Kirkland, Melchiot, Figueroa, Edman, Boyce, Bramble, Scharner, Valencia, Koumas, De Ridder, Cattermole, Brown, Watson, N'Zogbia, Kapo, Zaki, Mido, Rodallega, Sibierski, Pollitt, Kingson.
