Wigan Athletic make the long trip north up to Tannadice this afternoon to face SPL side and Scottish Cup winners Dundee United in the last preseason friendly before the action starts for real next Saturday.
Following on from Wednesday`s game against Real Zaragoza the Latics will once again look to use most of their squad in todays match though it will be interesting to see if former United striker Jason Scotland is in the Latics ranks following his muted move to Ipswich being reported on SSN
Victor Moses and Hendry Thomas look set to feature from the start as they didn`t get a run out in midweek whilst Charles N`Zogbia maybe rested due to his inclusion in the France squad next week.
Latics boss Roberto Martinez has spoken about the different challenges that facing teams like Dundee United pose and he feels that the game is ideal preparation for the forthcoming Premier League season.
Latics boss Roberto Martinez:
'Another important game
'I think the way that Dundee play will give us a completely different situation that Real Zaragoza.
'But that's exactly what we need - different dimensions, different problems on the pitch - and we're really getting close now to being ready for the start of the season.'
Dundee United from:
Pernis, Watson, Dixon, Douglas, Zemlikas, Kenneth, Dods, S. Robertson, Dillon, Buaben, Shala, Goodwillie, Hasselbaink, Casalinuovo, Myrie-Williams, Gomis, Banks, Dow.
Superbly named striker who's been imortalised by Jeff Stelling
Moses and Thomas should get a start
Kirkland, Boyce, Stam, Gohouri, Alcaraz, Golobart, Figueroa, Baradji, McCarthy, Diame, N'Zogbia, Gomez, Watson, McArthur, Rodalega, Boselli, Al Habsi, Scotland, Moses, Pollitt
The young forward will be looking to impress and hoping for a starting place
Hopefully a very entertaining 3-2 win for the Latics
