Grant Holt: Set for start

Striker Holt, who did not feature in Wigan's first two Europa League matches, is likely to be involved from the off against the Russian outfit.

Shaun Maloney, whose last appearance came in mid-September, is set to undergo a hip operation and has been ruled out for a minimum of three months.

Manager Owen Coyle has confirmed defender Stephen Crainey is fit to be involved again after a four-game absence.

Ali Al Habsi, Ivan Ramis and Gary Caldwell are not part of the squad for this competition.
