PRE-MATCH BUILD UP

Latics head into Saturday's game against West Ham United on a 14-match unbeaten run in all competitions, including four Emirates FA Cup clashes, twice each against AFC Fylde and AFC Bournemouth in the previous two rounds.

The Hammers are also on an impressive run of seven matches unbeaten, winning three times, including their 1-0 extra time victory over Latics' Sky Bet League One promotion rivals in a third round replay at the London Stadium.

Despite there being 33 teams between Latics and West Ham, Paul Cook's men are confident in their ability to shock a second Premier League outfit in a row following their 3-0 replay win against the Cherries in round three.

Speaking to the official match day programme for the fixture, Ryan Colclough said:

“West Ham are in the Premier League for a reason, whether they’ve got injuries or not they’ll come today with strength in depth.

“There’s a real togetherness and everybody wants to achieve the same thing, we want to win and going into this game everyone believes that we can.”
