Wigan Athletic travel down the M6 this evening to face West Brom in a bottom of the table clash looking for their second double of the season.
Latics beat the Baggies at the DW Stadium back in November and would welcome a similar result tonight has they try and claw their way out of the bottom three.
With players coming back from injury thick and fast there is a renewed optimism around the camp, James McCarthy and Victor Moses are both chomping at the bit and shouting for a starting place, though Moses` lack of fitness could see him on the bench.
West Brom are in real danger of being sucked into the relegation fight and are desperate to keep a clean sheet for the first time in 21 matches as their defensive frailties look like a big problem for Roberto de Matteo.
With ex-Latic Paul Scharner in the Baggies team though there is likely to be a little episode or two tonight, here`s hoping for a good game and three points to take back up the M6.
The Baggies could be set to give new signing Carlos Vela his debut, but Graham Dorrans is out.
West Brom from:
Myhill, Jara, Tamas, Olsson, Cech, Brunt, Mulumbu, Tchoyi, Thomas, Scharner, Morrison, Bednar, Odemwingie, Carson, Pablo, Shorey, Zuiverloon, Cox, Vela
We know all about him!!!
Tom Cleverley injured, new signing Conor Sammon not eligible
Al Habsi, Gohouri, G. Caldwell, S. Caldwell, Figueroa, Diame, McArthur, Thomas, N'Zogbia, Boyce, Watson, Stam, Di Santo, Rodallega, Pollitt, McCarthy, Gomez, McManaman, Moses
We need Charlie to be on fire
