By Neil Gunner

Leighton Baines, Lee McCulloch and Fitz Hall all return from suspension to bolster Wigan's squad. Caleb Folan is also fit for selection after a quick recovery from the ankle injury he picked up against Fulham. Wigan look to grasp a vital three points against cockney strugglers Charlton Athletic. It is looking like the Latics need just three more wins to secure their place in the premiership.

The current form of Wigan certainly looks set to give them the three points against Alan Pardew's Charlton.

Charlton have a doubt over on-loan midfielder Alexandre Song who is suffering with a hamstring problem. Striker Darren Bent is fit again despite being forced to withdraw from the England squad.

Probable teams :

Charlton : Carson, Young, El Karkouri, Diawara, Hreidarsson, Zheng, Holland, Song, Thomas, D Bent, M Bent, Randolph, Thatcher, Ambrose, Rommedahl, Bougherra, Faye, Lisbie, Hasselbaink, Sankofa.

Wigan : Filan, Granqvist, Jackson, Hall, De Zeeuw, Camara, Kilbane, Heskey, McCulloch, Johansson, Landzaat, Aghahowa, Valencia, Scharner, Taylor, Folan, Cywka, Cotterill, Skoko, Unsworth, Baines, Haestad, Nash.

Referee :Peter Walton (Northamptonshire)

Wigan are looking to beat Charlton for a third successive time, having scored three goals in each of the last two victories - both at the JJB. Henri Camara scored four of those goals, including one hat trick.
