Wigan: Kirkland, Boyce, Bramble, Caldwell, Figueroa, N’Zogbia, Scharner, Diame, Rodallega, Scotland, McCarthy.

Subs: Stojkovic, Thomas, Moses, Gomez, Sinclair, Moreno, Melchiot.

Stoke: Sorensen, Wilkinson, Huth, Shawcross, Higginbotham, Delap, Whelan, Whitehead, Etherington, Sanli, Sidibe.

Subs: Begovic, Lawrence, Beattie, Fuller, Pugh, Diao, Collins.

Referee: Andre Marriner (W Midlands)
