The midfielder, who was told he was leaving by previous boss Malky Mackay, starred in a 2-1 success over Brighton last weekend, the first victory of manager Gary Caldwell’s reign.
Caldwell will have a full squad, barring long-term absentees Emyr Huws (ankle) and Grant Holt (knee) and the suspended Martyn Waghorn, as struggling Latics seek the victory which could keep them alive for another week.
Wigan are five points behind Rotherham, who do have a game in hand but could yet face a points deduction.
Danny Batth has been ruled out for three months with a stress fracture in his foot, ending his Wolves season prematurely.
The defender misses the trip to the DW Stadium while Carl Ikeme is a major doubt with a knee injury but will be assessed.
Bakary Sako is also a doubt with a groin problem and Wolves will run the rule over his fitness ahead of the game.
Wolves need to win to stay in touch with the play-offs with Kenny Jackett’s side three points behind with two games left.
