Carlos Corberan’s men dominated possession and had plenty of chances but were not clinical enough as The Tigers had two clear-cut opportunities and scored them both.

Tonight’s opposition are desperate for a strong result as The Latics remain deep in a relegation battle. In 23rd position with six points the gap to safety, every game feels like a cup final.

Shaun Maloney’s side have drawn three and won one in their last five, proving to be a difficult team to beat. Corberan is very aware of this, hence a strong starting XI tonight.
