Hibs Vs Wigan Athletic - What the Bosses say

Ahead of this evening friendly between Hibernian of the SPL and Wigan Athletic of the EPL, Vital Wigan check out what Hibs boss Mixu Paatelained and Latics boss Steve Bruce have had to say on the game.

Mixu Paatelained:

'We will use a lot of substitutes tonight although we didn't make many changes against Middlesbrough'

'It's the Tuesday before the season starts and we want to make sure plenty of players get the chance to show what they can do while we also ensure others don't play too much so they are fresh for Kilmarnock on Saturday.'

Stev Bruce:

'It will be another good workout for us; these matches are about building up fitness for the new season."

'We have done well in the games so far, scored quite a few goals, which is always pleasing, and hopefully we're getting some confidence."

'Unfortunately we've got one or two injuries; it's been disappointing not to have seen much of Taylor or Koumas yet."

'Hopefully we can get everyone fit soon and have plenty of selection options for the West Ham game.'

So we can expect a few substitutions tonight as both sides try to give a run out for most of their squads.
