Wigan Athletic go into the game against Everton needing at least a point to move out of the bottom 3
With the home form that the Latics have suffered this season lets hope that this game can be a turning point
Latics have never beaten Everton in Wigan now would be a good time to start
Latics boss Steve Bruce
'Our home form has been the disappointing thing for us as you always want to perform in front of your own fans. Our best displays have been away from home.
'I think teams approach us differently now. They get men behind the ball and make it difficult for us. In the past they maybe thought there was an opportunity to get three points.
'We need to improve at home - that's how we stayed in the division last year. If we can turn that around we can look forward to a decent season.'
Everton boss David Moyes
'You can't take anything for granted in this league and we will have to play well if we are going to come away with the points.
'I think Wigan are a good side, I think they are strong and they work very hard.
'Steve Bruce has got himself a good group of players and the game will be hard, it always is against Wigan and against Steve's teams.'
Heskey could be back but Melchiot, Boyce and Zaki are all missing
Kirkland, Pollitt, Bramble, Scharner, Figueroa, Taylor, Kilbane, De Ridder, Valencia, Palacios, Brown, Cattermole, Koumas, Kapo, Heskey, Camara, Cywka, Kupisz, Routledge.
The talented Honduran is due a goal, lets hope that he can get off the mark
Fellaini has a groin strain and Pienaar is struggling with the knee injury
Howard, Neville, Yobo, Jagielka, Lescott, Arteta, Cahill, Rodwell, Vaughan, Pienaar, Fellaini, Osman, Yakubu, Saha, Hibbert, Anichebe, Baines, Nash, Castillo, Jutkiewicz, Gosling.
On his return to the JJB it will be nice to see Bainsey again, lets hope he doesnt get too frosty a reception
