Martinez has full squad at Wigan

Wigan manager Roberto Martinez has virtually a fully-fit squad to choose from ahead of the trip to Arsenal tomorrow.

Midfielder Olivier Kapo, who injured knee ligaments in pre-season, played in midweek for the reserves and could come into contention but is probably still a few days short of match fitness.

However, after last weekend’s victory over West Ham the best he can hope for is a place on the bench.

Provisional squad: Kirkland, Melchiot, Scharner, Bramble, Figueroa, N’Zogbia, Thomas, Diame, Koumas, Gomez, Rodallega, Edman, Boyce, Watson, Cho, Sinclair, Scotland, King, McCarthy, Pollitt, Kapo.
