The winger, who shot to prominence last season after he controversially escaped a red card and retrospective action for a knee-high lunge on Newcastle's Massadio Haidara, picked up his first professional dismissal against Bournemouth on Saturday.

The 22-year-old substitute had only been on the pitch three minutes when he was given a straight red for a challenge on Brett Pitman and, after Latics elected not to appeal the decision, he will serve a three-match ban.

Boss Owen Coyle has hinted at changes but the central defensive trio of Thomas Rogne (back), Gary Caldwell (hip) and Ivan Ramis (knee) are all out.
