Latics travel to London to face West Ham on the back of two home wins that carried the Blues to the summit of the Premiership, albeit for just 22 hours
West Ham somehow are still a Premiership club and ideally the Latics would be travelling to Bramall Lane to face Sheffield United for this fixture, maybe justice will still be done
The happy Hammers haven`t had the best start to the season losing at home to Sven`s City miss matches and by all accounts were lucky to concede just two goals
Last Saturday they faired a little better after Belamy`s blatant dive coned the referee to awarding a penalty that their only decent player, Mark Noble, put away to give them a 1-0 victory at newly promoted Birmingham City
The cocky Cockney`s believe that they have this one in the bag, well they are in for a shock if they think we are the same team from last year
'It's a big game for both of us because if we get a result we can push ourselves up and if we don't we're looking behind us again.'
'They will be the test for us. They will be a test of character and of how we perform.
'It will be very difficult for us but hopefully we can come back with something from those games.
'I'm delighted with the start we've had, but we've just got two wins on the board and we have to build on that.'
Scott Parker and Freddie Ljungberg both doubtful
Dean Ashton expected to be on bench
Lucas Neill to make his first start of the season
Bellamy and Zamora to play up front
Speedy striker who can be contraversial at times
Hutch expecting to keep same side that started against Sunderland
Emerson Boyce back on bench following hip injury
Paul Scharner set to make his 50th appearance for the Latics
Cultured, sublime, superb, will mesmerise the Hammers defence
West Ham 0-2 Latics
