Loan man may returnJoseph Mills may be back for Latics' Sky Bet League 1 match at Bristol City.
The loan man (pictured) has missed the last two matches with a hamstring strain which was picked up in the defeat at Wolves.
Lee Johnson says Mills, who is in the third month of a loan from Burnley, is improving and his chances of returning are 50/50.
Latics' manager, meanwhile, is unlikely to have any new loan signings in his side at Ashton Gate on Saturday.
Johnson admitted he has not made progress with enquiries for the players he had targeted.
