Latics have made an encouraging start to life under Johnson, following up his impressive 3-0 debut win over Hartlepool with a creditable 1-1 draw at high-flying Swindon on Good Friday.
Lee Barnard is set to continue as the attacking figurehead in their re-shaped 4-2-3-1 formation having opened the scoring against the Robins, although Matt Smith returned from a knee injury from the bench and provides a more robust line-leading option.
On-loan Bristol City midfielder Bobby Reid will hope to make his debut having been an unused substitute last time out and full-back Federico Bessone could also feature among the matchday squad having joined on a free transfer on Thursday.
