Robles in Latics squad
Wigan will include new signing Joel Robles in the squad that takes on Sunderland this weekend as Mike Pollitt is out injured.
The goalkeeper was given a rare start in the FA Cup replay against Bournemouth in midweek but picked up an injury early on and is now facing a spell on the sidelines.
Ali Al-Habsi will return between the sticks against the Black Cats, but Robles, who has arrived on loan from Atletico Madrid, will take his place on the bench.
Ivan Ramis is missing for the rest of the season with a knee injury and although Antolin Alcaraz is closing in on a return to action, the game will come too soon.
New signings Roger Espinoza and striker Angelo Henriquez are pushing for places but defender Adrian Lopez (hamstring) and midfielders Ben Watson (broken leg), Albert Crusat (knee) and Ryo Miyaichi (ankle) are still out.
