Good Run For Wigan in the Carling Cup this Year

The draw for the second round of the Carling Cup has seen Wigan Athletic given a home tie against League two side Notts County

This could be a good year for the Latics in one of the Cups and what better way to start a campaign than a home tie against lower league opposition.

No disrespect whatsoever to Notts County, who I am sure are a good side, but we are a top division side and they are a bottom division side, there should be no contest.

A home tie is whats needed to aid in progress in any competition , the year we got to the final we had home ties in every round, come on Brucie lets go for this we can get to Wembley and have a wonderful day out in miserable February.

Ties to be played week beginning 25th August
