Wigan v Fulham preview

Wigan boss Roberto Martinez is hopeful both leading scorer Franco Di Santo and midfielder James McCarthy will be able to play some part.
Both players missed last week’s 1-0 defeat by Newcastle with hamstring problems but have trained this week with the rest of the squad.
Goalkeeper Chris Kirkland is recovering from a back problem after returning early from a loan spell with Doncaster.
Fulham defender Aaron Hughes will miss out at Wigan.
The 31-year-old has been ruled out for a couple of weeks with a thigh injury picked up during last week’s 3-1 defeat to Everton and will therefore miss the trip to the DW Stadium.
Fellow defender Philippe Senderos will have a thigh injury of his own assessed on Friday, while Orlando Sa (hamstring) and Simon Davies (knee) are out.
