Ryan Colclough back to boost Wigan's survival bid

Ryan Colclough has boosted Wigan's options ahead of Huddersfield's trip to the DW Stadium.

Latics boss Warren Joyce recalled the youngster from a season-long loan spell with MK Dons on Sunday as he bids to try and steer the club away from the Championship's bottom three.

Joyce said it was otherwise too early to determine if any of his raft of absentees could return, with Shaun MacDonald having played despite illness at Derby on New Year's Eve.

Reece Burke (hip), Craig Morgan (groin), Reece James (ankle), Donervon Daniels (knee), David Perkins (hamstring), Alex Gilbey (ankle), Luke Garbutt (back), Kyle Knoyle (elbow) and Nick Powell (hamstring) are all currently sidelined.

Huddersfield skipper Mark Hudson could return to the starting line-up as head coach David Wagner considers making changes.

Centre-half Hudson stepped off the bench as a makeshift striker in Saturday's home draw against Blackburn after missing the previous four games due to a hamstring injury.

Jonathan Hogg remains sidelined with a quad strain sustained in the Boxing Day win against Nottingham Forest so Dean Whitehead could resume in midfield.

Defender Tareiq Holmes-Dennis will be assessed after missing out against Blackburn because of a minor knee problem, while winger Sean Scannell (ankle) is still out.
