During their last outing, Latics suffered a penalty shootout defeat to Bolton Wanderers after a 4-4 draw over 90 minutes and extra time in the Under 21 Premier League Cup at the Lancashire FA's County Ground.

Latics' current run of results began at the back end of October, drawing 3-3 against today's opponents Tranmere Rovers at Christopher Park in the Final Third Development League, with Andy Delort, Martyn Waghorn and Jordan Flores all on target.

So far in the FTDL Cup, Latics have played just one game, drawing 0-0 at Highbury Stadium away to Fleetwood Town.  Latics' next fixture in the competition is against Morecambe on 13 January at Robin Park Arena.
