EARLY TEAM NEWS

Speaking to iFollow Latics ahead of Friday night's Sky Bet Championship clash with Bristol City at the DW Stadium, Latics boss Paul Cook said he will be forced to make changes to face Lee Johnson's side.

"We'll have players missing tomorrow night," Cook began, "but I won't got into that in too much depth.

"Tuesday night has taken its toll on a couple of the lads, but it is what it is and it gives other lads opportunities to come in.

"Would we change the team Saturday-Tuesday-Friday regardless? Probably, yes. Maybe we should.

"We're going to have some enforced changes and that will be decided today (Thursday) and then we look forwards to how we want to play and how we can win the game.

"We've had some bumps and bruises this season. We've just had Michael Jacobs out for four or five weeks, Gavin Massey will be out for a period of time and Dan Burn is just coming back.

"We're going to be a little bit short on Friday night in terms of our usual starting XI, but that gives the rest of the squad the perfect opportunity to show themselves on the pitch.

"We'll have a longer break next week which will allow us to get some of the numbers back.

"This isn't me feeling in any way sorry for us because I'm not. This is what people don't really see behind the scenes."

Callum McManaman missed out on Tuesday night's 2-1 victory against Hull City because of a forced withdrawal from the squad due to injury late on, with Cook yet to learn his winger's availability.

"Callum McManaman isn't out long term, but I'm not sure if he'll make Bristol City. It's disappointing for him because these game periods come around and give players opportunities for lads to get more and more minutes, you only have to go back to the Rotherham game when Cal and Vaughany came on and got us the goal."

BRISTOL CITY

The Robins have had key players missing from the outset this season, with goalkeeper Frank Fielding suffering from an ankle ligament injury, meaning summer signing from Brighton & Hove Albion, Niki Maenpaa has been ever-present between the sticks.

Captain Bailey Wright has also suffered with a recurrence of a thigh injury, whilst Korey Smith has been missing since mid-August's defeat to Middlesbrough with a knee complaint.

According to manager Lee Johnson in the Bristol Post, defender Jens Hegeler and summer signing Mo Eisa are both improving well through their recoveries.

Latics moved up to 3rd in the Sky Bet Championship on Friday evening as Nick Powell’s header proved the difference against Bristol City at the DW Stadium.

On a tense evening, where both sides had the 3rd spot in the Championship table in their sights, Powell’s second-half goal earned a valuable three points for Paul Cook’s side, who won their fourth game out of five on their own patch this campaign.

Injuries to Will Grigg and James Vaughan meant Cook handed a first Latics start to Joe Garner in the only change to Latics’ side from Tuesday’s win over Hull City.

Early on, Latics were thankful to Cedric Kipre after Andreas Weimann looked to have a chance to score from a short Antonee Robinson back pass, though from their Latics took control.

Michael Jacobs had an early penalty shout turned down before he then fired over from 25 yards after a driving run on 22 minutes.

Powell was at the centre of everything again for Latics and he dragged a shot wide from the edge of the area six minutes later as Cook’s side searched for the opener before half-time.

After the restart, Latics took immediate aim on asserting their advantage and Josh Windass was inches from heading a Reece James cross home.

Windass turned provider minutes later, though, crossing wonderfully for Powell to rise and head home his fourth goal of the season.

Windass dragged wide when looking for his second goal in as many matches on the hour mark before Latics needed a rear-guard action to protect their lead.

In the main they did well, although they were thankful to their keeper Christian Walton in the 94th minute as he saved from Famara Diedhiou.

Another huge win for Latics, who end another busy week in positive fashion.

Latics: Walton; James, Robinson, Kipre, Dunkley; Morsy (Capt), Evans; Powell (Gibson 70), Jacobs (Naismith 90), Windass; Garner (Connolly 72)
Subs: Evans, Byrne, Roberts, Da Silva Lopes.

Bristol City: Maenpaa; Webster, Brownhill, Diedhiou, Weimann, Kelly, Eliasson (O’Dowda 60), Paterson (Watkins 60), Pack (Capt), Kalas (Baker 75), Hunt.
Subs: O’Leary, Da Silva, Taylor, Walsh.
