Wigan wait on Ryo Miyaichi for visit of West Ham


Wigan could be without winger Ryo Miyaichi for tomorrow's Barclays Premier League clash against West Ham at the DW Stadium.

The Japan international is suffering from a slight groin problem and is a doubt for the match, where Wigan will bid to end a six-game winless run in the league.

The Latics will again be without winger Albert Crusat (knee) and defender Antolin Alcaraz (groin), with manager Roberto Martinez admitting the Paraguayan centre-back is unlikely to be back much before Christmas.

Provisional squad: Al Habsi, Pollitt, Caldwell, Ramis, Figueroa, Beausejour, Boyce, McCarthy, McArthur, Maloney, Kone, Boselli, Gomez, Watson, Jones, McManaman, Fyvie, Lopez, Miyaichi, Mustoe, Golobart, Stam, Di Santo.
