Martinez set to make changes

Wigan manager Roberto Martinez will check on the general fitness of his squad ahead of Wednesday’s trip to Manchester United.

The Spaniard kept the same XI on the field for the entire 90 minutes in the St Stephen's Day draw at home to Blackburn and even with a couple of extra days of rest he may choose to freshen things up.

Midfielder Mohamed Diame is the only player unavailable as he recovers from a knee ligament injury.

Provisional squad: Kirkland, Bramble, Scharner, Melchiot, Boyce, Figueroa, N’Zogbia, Gomez, Thomas, Scotland, Rodallega, Amaya, De Ridder, Sinclair, Kingson, Cho, Bouaouzan, McCarthy.
