Tigers in Town

Latics entertain Championship side Hull City in the second round of the Carling Cup on Tuesday 28th August

High flying Latics will see this as a great opportunity to progress in a competition that they reached the final of two seasons ago

Phil Browns Hull come into the game following their first league win of the season, a 2-1 home victory against Norwich City, with goals from golden oldie Dean Windass and Richard Garcia and they are currently in 13th place in the Championship.

Chris Hutchings will see the game as an opportunity to give some fringe players a run out and with this in mind Latics have cancelled their reserve team fixture scheduled for Wednesday against Middlesbrough giving an indication of what to expect on the home team sheet

Vital Quotes:

Wigan Athletic Team News:

The team should see a lot of changes from Saturday and expect a side not too dissimilar from:

Pollitt, Boyce, Hall, Granqvist, King, Cotterill, Brown, Skoko, Cywka, Folan and Aghahowa

Player to watch: Julius Aghahowa

Could be the game where Aggy opens his Latics account and we may see one of his famous goal celebrations

Hull City Team News:

Hull will see an opportunity to cause a shock against a much changed Latics side and expect a near to full strength Hull side though Barmby will be missing due to injury

Possible line up:

Matt Duke, Andy Dawson, Damien Delaney, Wayne Brown, Michael Turner, Ian Ashbee, Dean Marney, Stuart Elliot, Richard Garcia, Dean Windass, Michael Bridges

Player to watch: Michael Bridges

Former Leeds striker, had an hand in both Hull goals on Saturday and he has something to prove
