PREVIEW

Latics' final Sky Bet League One fixture of the 2017/18 campaign is upon us, as Paul Cook takes his side to Doncaster Rovers knowing that a draw or victory will seal the title at the Keepmoat Stadium.

Having sealed promotion at Fleetwood Town at the end of last month, Latics head to Doncaster with more than 4,000 supporters in tow, hoping to clinch the club's third third tier title since joining the EFL in 1978.

Latics have recorded back-to-back draws against Bristol Rovers and AFC Wimbledon are winless since their 2-1 away victory over MK Dons and have failed to hit the target with a single goal in their last four outings.

IN REVERSE

Our November meeting with Doncaster Rovers provided one of the most memorable moments ever seen at the DW Stadium, not because of the comfortable 3-0 score line, but because, after scoring twice during the game, Ryan Colclough was substituted to immediately witness the birth of his second child!



CLASSIC MATCH

Latics clawed their way back from 3-1 down the last time they won away at Doncaster Rovers in 1988, with a very familiar face grabbing the last minute winner to secure a 4-3 victory. Take it away... Paul Cook!
