Sports Mole previews the Premier League clash between West Bromwich Albion and Wigan Athletic at The Hawthorns.

West Bromwich Albion host relegation-threatened Wigan Athletic on Saturday hoping to move to within three points of Liverpool in the Premier League table.

The Baggies recorded a resounding 3-0 triumph over Southampton last weekend, and they will be confident of building on that success against the Latics.

West Brom boss Steve Clarke will be without Marc-Antoine Fortune after the forward was dismissed at St Mary's Stadium.

Wigan go into the match requiring three points to keep the gap to Aston Villa to a minimum.

Villa are five points clear of the relegation zone, and manager Roberto Martinez will be aware that only a victory will do for his side.

Martinez will be without full-back Maynor Figueroa, who has been ruled out for the season with a groin injury.
