Wigan still stretched for Rotherham clash

Wigan boss Graham Barrow confirmed he has no fresh injury concerns following the midweek defeat to Ipswich, but the club's treatment room remains full.

Omar Bogle and fellow striker Will Grigg are unlikely to play again this term with thigh and knee problems respectively.

Andy Kellett, Donervon Daniels (both knee), Nick Powell and Ryan Tunnicliffe are also long-term absentees.

Wigan are still seven points away from safety following a 3-0 defeat at Portman Road which Barrow described as "suicidal kamikaze football."

Lee Frecklington is expected to return for Rotherham boss Paul Warne as he prepares for his first game since being made manager on a permanent basis.

Warne has taken charge of the Millers on a temporary basis since the departure of Kenny Jackett in November, but has been given the job full-time despite suffering relegation from the Championship.

Skipper Frecklington missed the midweek defeat to Sheffield Wednesday with knee and calf problems but is expected to return along with Tom Adeyemi, who has also been nursing a calf complaint.

Ben Purrington returned to the bench but ongoing hamstring problems mean he is unlikely to be risked, while Joe Newell will also be monitored after sustaining a knock but he is expected to shake it off.
