PRE-MATCH BUILD UP

Latics arrive back at the DW Stadium determined to kick-start another unbeaten sequence in Sky Bet League One following Saturday’s 3-1 defeat at Southend United, a result which put a stop to Paul Cook’s side’s 16-match run.

Gary Bowyer’s Blackpool will be buoyed by their late point in a 2-2 draw at home to Walsall, with Armand Gnanduillet off the bench to equaliser in the 88th minute at Bloomfield Road, helping the Seasiders to only their sixth point of 2018 so far.
