Latics successfull began their defence of the Final Third Development League West last week with a dramatic 4-3 victory against Wrexham, coming from 3-1 down to win in stoppage time at Christopher Park thanks to a Tim Chow goal.

Now the team's attention turns towards another of last season's triumphs, with Joe Parkinson's Development Squad hoping to get off to a winning start in the competition they emphatically won 7-1 in the final against Mansfield Town at the end of 2013/14.

During last season's cup run, Fleetwood were the only team to beat Latics when they won 2-0 at Robin Park Arena in the group stages.
