It's first versus sixth in the Final Third Development League West as Latics travel to Shrewsbury Town in search of victory to keep them ahead of second place Port Vale.

The Valiants were set to travel to Robin Park Arena for a top of the table clash, but a frozen pitch saw the game postponed.  It was a similar scenario for Shrewsbury, who also had their game called off.

Latics are looking to make it four straight league victories and are currently unbeaten over 90 minutes since October 2014.  Their previous fixture was a thriller, as Joe Parkinson's side progressed in the FTDL Cup with a 5-4 victory over Morecambe (see below).
