• Buy Saturday’s programme to read full interview with Emyr Huws
• Youngster also discusses Wales’ upcoming Euro 2016 campaign and playing with Gareth Bale
• Regular features included whilst new Orrell’s Post feature begins

Emyr Huws is the cover star for Saturday’s official Latics matchday programme as the 20-year-old’s former club Birmingham City visit the DW Stadium.

Huws talks about life at Manchester City, what he expects from the Blues on Saturday afternoon and also his international prospects with Wales.

In an extract of the interview with the Welsh international, he says he’s enjoying life with Latics whilst he was also pleased to see the result finally match the performance against Blackpool last weekend.

‘Wigan Athletic life for Huws has been positive; the Welsh international has taken a grip of one of the three central midfield spots Uwe Rosler has opted to field in the early season games.

And the 20-year-old says he’s enjoying his spell at the DW Stadium, though he hopes results begin to match performances in the coming games after narrow defeats to Cardiff City and Charlton Athletic left Latics worse off than perhaps they deserve to be.

“I’ve settled in well, the boys and the staff have been great with me and the fans have been superb as well so I’m pleased with how it’s gone,” Huws added.

“I think the problem has been in the results rather than the performances and I think we deserved a bit more from the performance against Cardiff.

“Against Blackpool, we put it all together and got the three points so hopefully we can keep doing the same sort of things.”’

As for Birmingham, Huws expects Lee Clark’s side to attack from the off, be direct and try to get balls into the box as often as possible.

You can read the full interview with the Manchester City loanee in the matchday programme with lots of exclusive content packed in, including photos from yesteryear from Frank Orrell in the new Orrell’s Post, 

James Perch tells us his first and last whilst Uwe Rosler, Jonathan Jackson and Gary Caldwell all give their regular columns.
