PREVIEW

Latics' cup run continues on Tuesday afternoon, as the Development Squad welcome Accrington Stanley to Robin Park Arena for a 2.00pm kick off in the Molson Coors Lancashire FA Senior Cup Quarter Final.

Peter Atherton's side will be looking to bounce back from the disappointment of a 4-2 defeat at home to Wrexham at the end of November, their last competitive fixture and first defeat in their last four outings.

In the event of a draw at full time, the quarter-final will go straight to penalties.  The winning team will go through to face Everton away in the semi-final.

THE CUP SO FAR

Latics kicked off their competitive fixtures for 2015/16 in this competition, winning 3-2 at Robin Park against local rivals Bolton Wanderers thanks to a hat-trick from Louis Robles.



Accrington impressed in their first round fixture, comfortably seeing themselves through with a 5-1 victory away at Bury.
