Wigan will be without Honduras internationals Hendry Thomas and Maynor Figueroa for their Barclays Premier League game at Wolves on Boxing Day as both players serve one-match suspensions.
Emmerson Boyce (hamstring) and Franco Di Santo (ankle) are still not fit to return while James McCarthy and Victor Moses are long-term casualties.
Club captain Gary Caldwell and on-loan midfielder Tom Cleverley remain doubtful after thigh and hip problems respectively.
Team (from): Al Habsi, Stam, Alcaraz, S Caldwell, G Caldwell, Gohouri, Watson, N'Zogbia, Diame, Cleverley, McArthur, Rodallega, Boselli, Gomez, McManaman, Golobart, Mustoe, Pollitt.
Wolves boss Mick McCarthy will check on the fitness of a host of players before finalising his side for the Barclays Premier League clash at Wigan on Boxing Day.
McCarthy will hope defender Christophe Berra (thigh) and midfielder Nenad Milijas (foot) have recovered from injuries suffered in the win over Birmingham a fortnight ago.
But Matt Jarvis (knee), Kevin Doyle (thigh), Michael Mancienne (knee), David Jones (foot), Jody Craddock (hip) and Steven Mouyokolo (back) are doubts. Skipper Karl Henry is unlikely to have recovered from a knee setback although he is making good progress.
Adlene Guedioura (broken leg) and Michael Kightly (knee) remain the long-term absentees.
Provisional squad: Hennessey, Zubar, Berra, Stearman, Elokobi, Foley, Edwards, Milijas, Hunt, Ward, Ebanks-Blake, Hahnemann, Fletcher, Mujangi-Bia, Jarvis, Doyle, Mancienne, Jones, Craddock, Mouyokolo, Ebanks-Landell, Winnall, Rooney, Doherty.
