Football - Maloney back to boost Latics

Wigan should be boosted by the return of winger Shaun Maloney when they welcome Ipswich on Sunday.

PA Sport Report

The Scotland international did not make the trip to Belgium for the 0-0 draw with Zulte-Waregem as he was rested but he is expected to return to action against Mick McCarthy's men.

Owen Coyle made seven changes to his side for the Europa League trip and Ben Watson and Leon Barnett look set to return to the starting line up while Marc Antoine Fortune will hope for a recall.

Striker Grant Holt is still out with a knee injury and he is joined in the treatment room by Ali Al Habsi (shoulder), Gary Caldwell (hip) and Ivan Ramis (knee).
