Rotherham United v Wigan Athletic Head to Head

EARLY TEAM NEWS

Speaking to iFollow Latics after his side's 3-2 defeat to Aston Villa at Villa Park on Saturday, Latics boss Paul Cook said he expects to make changes for Tuesday night's Carabao Cup Round One visit to Rotherham United.

"The league is our total and utter priority, this year, the FA Cup as well. So there will be a lot of changes on Tuesday night for our supporters who are travelling. I wouldn’t want people to travel across and be disappointed with the team selection.

"We respect every competition we’re in but these games are really tough on the legs and we’re in a very competitive league and we’re going to make sure the team selection are based around that."

With changes expected, Latics could hand competitive debuts to Leo Da Silva Lopes and Kal Naismith who are yet to feature this season, with the likes of Jamie Jones, Alex Bruce, Gary Roberts and Jamie Walker who have all been unused substitutes in the opening two Sky Bet Championship fixtures likely to be in contention.

A much-changed Latics side exited the Carabao Cup at the First Round stage as Paul Cook’s side suffered a 3-1 defeat at Rotherham United.

With only Callum Connolly, Callum McManaman and Cedric Kipre remaining from the side that narrowly lost to Aston Villa on Saturday, Latics still turned out a dominant performance with more efforts on goal and possession than their hosts, before the Millers proved more clinical at the right times.

Jamie Proctor got two of the goals for the hosts, either side of a Semi Ajayi header, whilst James Vaughan got a late consolation for Latics. Kal Naismith, Leo Da Silva Lopes and academy forward Joe Gelhardt were all handed first team debuts, the latter from the bench.

Latics started the brighter of the two sides with Naismith having a dangerous early cross cleared as the visitors took control of possession. McManaman had Latics’ first meaningful effort, though, as he shot wide of Lewis Price’s left-hand post after a long free-kick had been headed down by Vaughan.

The conventional wasn’t working for Latics so Gary Roberts tried something out of the ordinary, shooting from 45 yards and seeing his effort go just over Price’s goal.

Two minutes later, Latics found themselves behind as Proctor fired home his first from close range following Latics’ inability to clear a set-piece.

McManaman twice went close to getting an immediate leveller before Paul Cook’s side got hit by a sucker punch with Ajayi heading home from an Anthony Forde corner on 41 minutes.

That said, Latics nearly got one back on the stroke of half-time as Roberts curled an effort from range onto the crossbar.

Cook’s side started the second-half brightly in reaction, with Roberts playing in Jamie Walker, who cut in from the right before forcing Price into a good low save.

Alex Bruce and Shaun MacDonald both then had efforts off target with a header and 25-yard shot respectively before the hosts got their third on the hour mark through Proctor again, who headed in a Billy Jones cross.

Latics kept going and Connolly saw a shot from range well-saved by Price before Latics did get one back through Vaughan, who headed in a Roberts delivery.

Late on, Cook introduced academy youngsters Gelhardt and Jensen Weir, the former making his first team debut.

Rotherham United: Price, Vyner, Ajayi (Capt), Forde, Proctor (Vassell 81), Ball, Robertson, Williams (Taylor 74), Wiles, Raggett, Jones.
Subs: Bilboe, Palmer, Newell, Hinds, McGinley.

Latics: Jones; Da Silva Lopes, Bruce (Capt), Kipre, Naismith; MacDonald, Connolly (Weir 89); Walker (Gelhardt 78), Roberts, McManaman (Cole 62); Vaughan.
Subs: Evans, Merrie, Golden, Long.
