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.'

Wigan Athletic Team News:

Kirkland, Scharner and Edman all out but Taylor should get a start
Latics from:
Pollitt, Melchiot, Boyce, Scharner, Figueroa, Valencia, Cattermole, Palacios, Kapo, Heskey, Zaki, Bramble, Brown, De Ridder, Kilbane, Koumas, Taylor, Camara, Sibierski, Montrose, Nash.
