PREVIEW

Gary Caldwell and his staff have continued their preparations with the squad ahead of the new Sky Bet League One season, with training session at Stirling and St Andrews after Tuesday's friendly at Partick Thistle.

New signings Francisco Junior and Jonjoe Kenny, on loan from Everton, have trained with Latics for the first time this week, as has defensive recruit Reece James, who signed from Manchester United after the draw with Partick.

Trialists John Lundstram and Kevin McNaughton continue to train with the group, after Lundstram completed 45 minutes in Tuesday's match.

In a recent interview with Latics PlayerHD, Will Grigg put his ambitions forward for Friday's match, hoping for a 'big involvement'.

For our hosts Dundee pre-season has brought about mixed results.  They won their opening fixture on 15 July 2-1 away at Raith Rovers, but have since recorded back-to-back 1-0 defeats away at Brechin City and at home to Rotherham United.

Dundee's work in the transfer market has seen them recruit Nick Ross from Inverness CT, Julen Etxabeguren from East Fife, David Mitchell from Stranraer, Kevin Holt from Queen of the South and Kane Hemmings from Barnsley.
