The Latics have had a successful pre-season so far, having won all of their fixtures to this point, including their last friendly against Stoke City.

Leam Richardson’s side, after making a remarkable turnaround to escape relegation last season, will be trying to push themselves into promotion contention during the upcoming campaign in League One.

They’ve had a busy summer so far, adding the likes of prolific goalscorer Charlie Wyke and midfielder Max Power, who has returned to the club.

In the PNE camp, Daniel Johnson has returned to training with the squad following Jamaica’s elimination from the Gold Cup, while Ched Evans and Alan Browne are available again after making their return from injuries over the last two games.

Head coach Frankie McAvoy has suggested he may be looking to try out a different formation when they come up against Wigan, giving him a good chance to take a look at his players in a new system before the Championship season begins next weekend.
