Paul Pogba: Celebrates in style with Jesse Lingard

The Tottenham loanee came off against Reading last Saturday with a calf knock but has trained all week without any problems.

Scott Hogan is a long-term absentee after suffering another serious knee injury, while fellow striker Chris Long will miss out with a gashed leg.

The Bees hope Long will be fit for the play-offs should they qualify. They need to beat Wigan and hope either Derby or Ipswich lose.

Already-relegated Wigan will bid farewell to the Sky Bet Championship without both James McClean and Martyn Waghorn.

McClean was sent off in the latter stages of the defeat to Wolves last weekend and joins fellow forward Waghorn on the sidelines as he completes a three-match ban following his dismissal against Millwall.

Gary Caldwell has therefore confirmed youngsters Louis Robles and Matty Hamilton will travel to west London as his attacking options are depleted.

Striker Grant Holt (knee) and Wales international Emyr Huws (ankle) will not appear until Latics are in League One next term.
