Carling Cup Preview
Latics go in to this tie with a fantastic chance to progress through to the 3rd round
With three divisions between the sides the Latics should have enough strength in depth.
Expect a much changed side from the one that played Chelsea on Sunday
Henri Camara could be given a run out up front with Ryan Taylor, Kevin Kilbane and Michael Brown all likely to come into the starting eleven
What the bosses say
Latics boss Steve Bruce:
On why the Carling Cup is important
'When I first won the title with Manchester United, I think Norwich were the team we had to beat to it'
'That will never happen again now. I don't think you'll ever have a smaller team mounting a challenge.'
Notts County boss Ian McParland:
On the possibility of Adam Nowland missing the game
'It was disappointing for Adam because he was running the midfield.
'I hope it isn't too bad but it is a major disappointment because he has been doing so well for us.'
