Wigan are forced into a defensive change for their Premier League trip to West Brom with Maynor Figueroa ruled out for the rest of the season with a groin injury.

Paraguay centre-back Antolin Alcaraz (hamstring) is close to fitness but unlikely to return this weekend, meaning Ronnie Stam could come in at the back.

Midfielder Ben Watson, out since last November with a broken leg but on the bench last week, could figure while defender Roman Golobart and midfielder Fraser Fyvie are in contention after knocks.

Provisional squad: Robles, Al Habsi, Boyce, Stam, Scharner, Golobart, Caldwell, Beausejour, Gomez, McCarthy, Espinoza, McArthur, Maloney, McManaman, Kone, Di Santo, Henriquez, Fyvie.
