Wigan return to the DW Stadium after picking up a vital three points at Scunthorpe last week. Latics are currently on a five game winning streak at home, and have done so without conceding a goal.

We welcome Sam Morsy and Michael
Jacobs back into the squad tomorrow, which gives us a very strong looking squad for Paul Cook to pick from.

Southend have struggled so far this season, and currently lie in the relegation zone. It should, I repeat should, be a comfortable home win tomorrow.

On the plus side, we can move top of the league tomorrow.

Vital Quotes:

Took his goal brilliantly last week. Expecting Southend to sit deep for large periods of the game, need Powell to show his class and unlock the defence

Anton Ferdinand will miss out through suspension, while Harry Kyprianou and ex-Latic defender Rob Kieran remain sidelined through injury.

Player to watch: Simon Cox

Always dangerous for opponents. Works hard, scores goals and deserves to play at a higher level.
