Manchester City defender Kolo Toure is unlikely to come back into contention for another fortnight.
The Ivory Coast international is available again after serving a six-month ban for failing a drugs test.
The 30-year-old has been training with the rest of the City squad but manager Roberto Mancini has confirmed he needs to sharpen up his match fitness before being considered for a first-team return.
"It depends," he said. "He is fit but he needs to play. I think in two weeks he can play."
Toure has been named in City's 25-man Champions League squad, with the Blues playing their first-ever game in the competition at home to Napoli next Wednesday.
The following Wednesday they host Birmingham in the Carling Cup third round before returning to Champions League action away to Bayern Munich on 27th September.
Saturday's Premier League game at home to Wigan will be the first of seven in 22 days but Mancini is focused on maintaining both the side's 100 per cent start and their 100 per cent record against the Latics since the Italian took charge.
"It will be a very hard month because we play every three days," he said. "They are all important games.
"I need to think one game at a time and I want to think about Wigan.
"Wigan have a fantastic manager, they play football very well. They want to attack and score.
"This is difficult - every game we have played against Wigan we have won but we have had a problem.
"We will have to have good concentration and a good attitude.
"It is important to have the same attitude we had in the first three games."
