Bent on a start

Marcus Bent is set to start along side Antoine Sibierski in attack for the Latics at Readimg

With the inspirational Heskey missing Bent will be given his chance to stake claim to Wigan's centre forward bearth

Chris Hutchings will bemoaning his luck as far as injuruies are concerned but at least Kilbane is set to return following suspension

Another player hoping to profit from the misfortune of others is midfielder Michael Brown

Latics summer signing from Fulham is due a start with both Landzaat and Valencia missing with long term injuries

Brown reckons he is a little off the pace at the moment due to him having to serve a two match suspension at the start of the season but he feels he is about to show his worth
