Jean Beausejour is set to return to the Wigan starting line-up for Saturday's crucial Barclays Premier League encounter with Tottenham at the DW Stadium.

With Antolin Alcaraz (hamstring) out for three weeks, Beausejour is likely to profit from a defensive reshuffle that is likely to see Maynor Figueroa move back from the wing-back berth he filled at West Ham last weekend.

Wigan are seeking to complete a first ever league double against Spurs and know only three points will take them out of the relegation zone on goal difference from Aston Villa, who are not in action until Monday.

Tottenham winger Aaron Lennon has recovered from his knee injury and is available for the game at Wigan.

Forward Gareth Bale and striker Jermain Defoe suffered no reaction to their respective ankle and pelvis problems against Manchester City last Sunday and are fully fit for the trip to the DW Stadium.

Midfielder Sandro (knee) and defensive duo Younes Kaboul (thigh) and William Gallas (calf) are unavailable.

Provisional squads

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

Tottenham: Lloris, Friedel, Archer, Walker, Naughton, Dawson, Caulker, Vertonghen, Assou-Ekotto, Holtby, Livermore, Dembele, Carroll, Parker, Ceballos, Huddlestone, Sigurdsson, Lennon, Dempsey, Bale, Adebayor, Defoe, Coulthirst.
