Danny Cowley names an unchanged side for this afternoon’s encounter with struggling Wigan.

The bench also remains the same for the DW Stadium fixture on a nippy day in Lancashire.

That means Ronan Curtis continuing in attack, with the club missing John Marquis (banned), Ellis Harrison (knee) and Jordy Hiwula (ankle).
