Roberto Martinez: Has overseen a reversal in fortune for Wigan

Roberto Martinez: Has overseen a reversal in fortune for Wigan

Wigan Athletic have found form of late, but their weekend opponents West Bromwich Albion are looking to maintain a flying start to the season.

The Latics have offered the best possible response to a recent six-match winless run, with back-to-back victories helping to steer them six points clear of the drop zone.

Roberto Martinez's men can now match the 10-game return of Liverpool and will feel that a top-half standing is well within reach.

Wigan have, however, won three games in a row just once in the last three-and-a-half years and need to ensure that they do not allow their standards to slip on home soil.

West Brom will be looking to take full advantage of any untimely stumble from the Latics, with Steve Clarke's men having already shown that they are a force to be reckoned with this season.

The Baggies sit fifth in the division, level on points with Everton, and could move into the UEFA Champions League places on Saturday if results go their way.

A lofty standing has been achieved on the back of a sparkling record at The Hawthorns, though, with Clarke yet to oversee a win on the road - with two points taken from four fixtures.

Wigan  Badge Wigan

Midfielder James McArthur is rated as only 50-50 to play for Wigan due to a dead leg.

Martinez will again be without wingers Ryo Miyaichi and Albert Crusat, as they nurse groin and knee injuries respectively.

West Brom Badge West Brom

West Brom goalkeeper Boaz Myhill is on stand-by to play his first senior game for the club in 21 months.

Myhill will step in if number one Ben Foster fails to recover from a recurring groin problem which resulted in him seeing a specialist in Germany on Thursday.

Key midfielder James Morrison will be available should he suffer no adverse reaction on returning to training after missing the 2-0 home win against Southampton on Monday with a hamstring complaint.
