Striker Hugo Rodallega returns to Wigan's starting line-up after a three-match suspension to face Everton at Goodison Park tomorrow.
However, fellow forward Franco di Santo could be out for up to three months with an ankle problem, while captain Gary Caldwell - who has been out since mid-November with a thigh injury - is unlikely to be risked.
James McCarthy (ankle) and Victor Moses (shoulder) are long-term absentees.
Provisional squad: Al Habsi, Stam, Gohouri, Alcaraz, Figueroa, Diame, Thomas, N'Zogbia, Gomez, Cleverley, Rodallega, Pollitt, Boyce, S Caldwell, Watson, Boselli, McArthur, McManaman.
Everton manager David Moyes will monitor the fitness of John Heitinga and Steven Pienaar ahead of the Barclays Premier League match against Wigan tomorrow.
Heitinga has a stiff knee while Pienaar suffered an ankle problem in the draw at Chelsea last weekend.
Mikel Arteta is again ruled out through suspension while Tony Hibbert remains sidelined with an ankle problem.
Provisional squad: Howard, Heitinga, Baines, Distin, Jagielka, Neville, Fellaini, Cahill, Osman, Pienaar, Beckford, Yakubu, Saha, Anichebe, Rodwell, Bilyaletdinov, Mucha, Baxter, Coleman.
