Jack Collison is in line to make his Wigan Athletic debut from the bench in today's Championship game against Watford after the West Ham United midfielder joined the Latics on loan in midweek, while fellow debutant Rob Kiernan makes the starting XI against his former club.
Watford will again be without Mathias Ranegie - the Swedish striker serves the second game of a three-match ban.
Meanwhile, fellow forward Fernando Forestieri also misses out with a persistent toe injury.
