Premier League Preview: West Brom - Wigan

Roberto Martinez's side faces a must-win game as Wigan aims to boost its Premier League safety bid and maintain its record of never being relegated from the top flight

  PROBABLE LINEUPS

WEST BROM

Foster
Reid, McAuley, Olsson, Ridgewell
Yacob, Mulumbu, Dorrans
Odemwingie, Long, Lukaku
WIGAN

Joel
Boyce, Caldwell, Scharner
Stam, McCarthy, Gomez, Beausejour
McManaman, Kone, Maloney

West Brom will have to do without Marc-Antoine Fortune (suspended) and James Morrison (groin) is likely to miss out but Chris Brunt is expected to shake off a knee injury.

Goran Popov (calf) remains a week away from a return while long-term absentees Zoltan Gera and George Thorne (both knee) remain sidelined.

For Wigan, Maynor Figueroa will miss the rest of the season after he was stretched off during Saturday's draw with Tottenham and joins Antolin Alcaraz (hamstring), Albert Crusat (knee), Mike Pollitt, Ivan Ramis (knee) and Ryo Miyaichi on the sidelines.

However, there is better news for Roberto Martinez, with midfielder Ben Watson once again available after recovering from a broken leg sooner than expected.
