After resting the vast majority of their first team for the narrow win over Macclesfield at the weekend, Wigan should restore their big guns to the starting XI for the trip to Stoke.
With Piscu back and available, Emmerson Boyce could move into midfield with Ronnie Stam dropping to the bench.
Otherwise it will be the usual players for Wigan.
After starting the season with an impressively tight defence, Stoke have begun leaking goals in their most recent games, shipping 13 goals in their last 4 Premier League outings. They did, though keep Manchester City at bay for much of their FA Cup tie at the weekend.
Wigan's loss against Sunderland left them with only one win in their last 10 league matches and second bottom of the Premier League table, with QPR hitting some slightly better form and hot on their tails.
Stoke have a very good home record and although they haven't beaten Wigan at home since the 2008/09 season, they should manage to do so here.
