Premier League Preview: Wigan - Southampton

Roberto Martinez's side will go into the fixture looking for its first win in five Premier League games, after a poor run of form has left it stranded in the drop zone.

  PROBABLE LINEUPS

WIGAN ATHLETIC

Al-Habsi
Golobart, Caldwell, Figueroa
Stam, McCarthy, McArthur, Beausejour
Espinoza, Di Santo, Maloney

SOUTHAMPTON

Boruc
Clyne, Yoshida, Forren, Shaw
 Cork, Schneiderlin,
Puncheon, Ramirez, Lallana
Lambert


Wigan goes into the contest beset by injury problems. Emerson Boyce (hamstring) is still a doubt, while Mike Pollitt (thigh), Antolin Alcaraz (groin), and Ryo Miyaichi (ankle) are all still out.

Ben Watson (broken leg) is still on the sidelines, Ivan Ramis (knee) is out for the rest of the season and Albert Crusat (knee) is also unavailable. Arouna Kone, meanwhile, is still at the Africa Cup of Nations.

Southampton has far less concerns, with only Guly Do Prado and Jose Fonte (both knee) out through injury.

Emmanuel Mayuka will not return in time from the Africa Cup of Nations in time to take part.
