Sports Mole previews the Premier League encounter between Wigan Athletic and West Bromwich Albion at the DW Stadium on Saturday.

High-flying West Bromwich Albion travel to the DW Stadium on Saturday looking to break into the top four in the Premier League.

A 2-0 win over Southampton at The Hawthorns on Sunday got Steve Clarke's men back on track following two straight defeats.

A great start has seen the Baggies rise to fifth in the table with five wins from their 10 games so far. However, they have yet to win on the road this season.

James Morrison (knock) and Steven Reid (hamstring) are on the treatment table, with the former facing a late fitness test.

Antolin Alcaraz is still a doubt for the hosts, as he continues to struggle with a groin injury. James McArthur has to prove his fitness following a thigh strain, but Ryo Miyaichi is expected to be back in contention.

Last week's deserved victory at White Hart Lane will have done much to inspire Roberto Martinez's team.
