Norwich will again be without defenders Daniel Ayala (hamstring) and Marc Tierney (groin) for the game against the Latics.

England under-21 centre-back Ryan Bennett is in contention after being an unused substitute during the defeat at Stoke, where fit-again midfielder Jonny Howson made his first appearance since signing from Leeds.

Striker James Vaughan (hamstring) is still not available.

Wigan midfielder David Jones will be out of action for two weeks with a knee injury.

It means Jones will miss Sunday’s trip to Norwich as the Premier League’s bottom club look to get their season back on track after last weekend’s horror show against Swansea.

Mike Pollitt is out for four weeks with a shoulder problem but Victor Moses, Mohamed Diame and Hugo Rodallega are all expected to return to Latics’ line-up after starting the latest defeat on the bench.

Norwich (from): Ruddy, Ward, Whitbread, Martin, Naughton, Surman, Johnson, Fox, Howson, Wilbraham, Pilkington, Jackson, E Bennett, Holt, Steer, Hoolahan, Morison, R Bennett.

Wigan (from): Al Habsi, Figueroa, Watson, Boyce, Alcaraz, Diame, Caldwell, Moses, Gomez, McCarthy, Di Santo, Stam, McArthur, Lopez, Thomas, Sammon, Maloney, Crusat, Gohouri, Rodallega, McManaman, Beausejour, Kirkland.
