Wigan will be without Danny Fox against Stoke.

The defender, who joined the Latics last month from Nottingham Forest, suffered a head injury against Rotherham on Saturday and lost consciousness, meaning he will not be available against until the game with Ipswich on February 23, to due concussion protocol.

Captain Sam Morsy is back in contention after serving a suspension, while Lee Evans is fit again after a bout of illness.

Nick Powell is expected to return to the squad after missing the Rotherham match to attend the birth of his second child.

Stoke have Charlie Adam (calf) back in training but it remains to be seen whether the veteran midfielder will be involved at the DW Stadium.

Potters boss Nathan Jones felt his side lacked a cutting edge in defeat to West Brom at the weekend and he could bring Benik Afobe back into the team.

Saido Berahino is also an option for Jones, whose side have lost their last three Championship games without scoring a goal.

Stoke will want some measure of revenge on Wednesday night following Wigan’s surprise 3-0 win at the bet365 Stadium back in August.
