Wigan could be without Maynor Figueroa and Gary Caldwell for the visit of Steve Kean's Rovers.

Figueroa was substituted against West Brom last time out with a hamstring problem and is rated 50-50 to feature against Rovers, while Caldwell is unlikely to play having had surgery on a fractured cheekbone.

Antonio Alcaraz remains out with a soft tissue injury.

Roque Santa Cruz, Phil Jones and Gael Givet are all missing for Blackburn.

Santa Cruz and Givet are both suffering from groin injuries while Jones is out for the season with a knee injury he picked up against West Ham in December.

However, Jermaine Jones is available to manager Steve Kean after he recovered from the back spasm that forced him off during the midweek defeat against Tottenham and fellow midfielder Brett Emerton is also in contention after his sojourn with Australia at the Asian Cup.

Wigan (from): Al Habsi, Pollitt, Kirkland, Gohouri, Stam, Figueroa, Watson, Diame, McArthur, Thomas, N'Zogbia, McManaman, Rodallega, Lopez, Gomez, S Caldwell, G Caldwell, Boyce, De Ridder, Golobart, Mustoe, Robinson, Di Santo.

Blackburn (from): Robinson, Salgado, Samba, Nelsen, Olsson, Hoilett, Andrews, J Jones, Dunn, MB Diouf, Roberts, Pedersen, Bunn, Hanley, Emerton, Nzonzi, Grella, Benjani, Kalinic, Morris, Lowe.
