The Honduran missed Saturday's draw at Stoke through suspension but is expected to be restored to the starting line-up, with Jordi Gomez the man likely to be replaced. Former Liverpool keeper Chris Kirkland suffered no reaction to his recent back injury at the Britannia Stadium and will face the club he made 25 appearances for in a five-year stay. Latics (from): Kirkland, Edman, Bramble, Scharner, Melchiot, Figueroa, Boyce, N'Zogbia, Diame, Scotland, Koumas, Sinclair, Cho, Rodallega, Amaya, De Ridder, Thomas, Gomez, McCarthy, Kingson, Pollitt.
