West Ham will once again be without midfielder Joe Cole for Saturday's game against Wigan as he struggles to recover from his hamstring injury.

Defender James Tomkins (calf) and full-back George McCartney (knee) are also out.

Midfielder Mark Noble may make his first start since February after recovering from a shoulder injury to come off the bench against Manchester United on Wednesday.

Wigan manager Roberto Martinez has no new injury worries for his side's third match in a week but may choose to freshen things up again at West Ham.

The Spaniard made just two changes for Wednesday's defeat at Manchester City, bringing back goalkeeper Joel Robles and striker Franco di Santo.

Forward Callum McManaman could be set for a recall but Roman Golobart remains out of the picture after twisting an ankle in training.

Provisional Squads

West Ham: Jaaskelainen, Demel, Reid, O'Brien, Pogatetz, Collins, Vaz Te, Taylor, Jarvis, Noble, Collison, Diame, Nolan, O'Neil, Carroll, Henderson, Potts, C Cole, Wellington, Spence.

Wigan: Al Habsi, Scharner, Alcaraz, Figueroa, Boyce, McCarthy, Gomez, Beausejour, Maloney, Kone, McManaman, Robles, Stam, Caldwell, McArthur, Espinoza, Henriquez, Di Santo.
