The hosts have slight concerns over both Cristian Montano and Lee Croft but are hopeful the pair will be fit.

Montano is troubled with a thigh strain while fellow winger Croft is hampered by an ankle knock.

However, Latics manager Paul Dickov is banking on both players being available as his side look to continue their promising start to December which has yielded back-to-back wins.

Dickov will be without goalkeeper Dean Bouzanis once more, though, as he completes a three-match suspension following his sending off against Doncaster.

In Bouzanis' absence, Alex Cisak will remain between the sticks after keeping a clean-sheet in their last outing against Colchester.

Dickov's men have won four of their last five outings and will fancy their chances of defeating a Robins team without a victory in their previous three contests.

The game is subject to a pitch inspection at 9.30 on Saturday morning owing to the recent cold weather.

Visiting boss Paolo Di Canio could include Tommy Miller in his squad for the trip to Manchester.

The Scottish midfielder has missed the whole of November with a thigh problem, but is hoping to earn a recall, and could be fit enough for a place on the bench.

Alan McCormack's return from suspension gives Di Canio options in the heart of his defence, with Aden Flint hoping to keep hold of his starting place.

Di Canio has no new concerns as his once injury-depleted squad returns to full fitness.

Long-term absentee Fedo Bessone is back in light training following a calf problem, but Alan Navarro remains absent.

Jay McEveley is sidelined with a knee problem, meaning Joe Devera will continue his run in the side.
