Latics have failed to win at Craven Cottage since October 2006 when an 83rd minute strike by Henri Camara sealed all three points. The fixture is also notorious for producing a stalemate with six of the last 12 ending in a draw.
Fulham have had a mixed first half of the season but produced what some would say was a shock result at West Bromwich Albion last time out in the league, beating the Baggies 2-1, which took them up to six wins for the season and ended a run of four games without a win.
For Latics, it's the first of two very long away trips in four days with a trip to the south coast scheduled for Tuesday's FA Cup replay with Bournemouth.
Roberto Martinez says that he considers Antolin Alcaraz to be fully fit and fully recovered from his groin injury sustained on international duty in early September, but the Paraguayan defender now just needs match fitness. Gary Caldwell and Ivan Ramis came through the Manchester United game without any set-backs but Ben Watson (leg), Ryo Miyaichi (ankle) and Adrian Lopez (hamstring) all remain side-lined. Arouna Kone is away on international duty with Ivory Coast at the Africa Cup of Nations.
Fulham could be set to welcome back goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer who has now recovered from a neck injury, he could also be joined back in the team by Damien Duff and John Arne Riise.
