Paul Dickov anticipates some lively exchanges on the touchline at this afternoon's npower League One match at Milton Keynes Dons.
In the opposing dugout will be Ian Wright, the Latics manager's big buddy, who is on the coaching staff at stadium:mk.
The pair have known each other for over 20 years when Dickov was a trainee at Arsenal where striker Wright was a living legend.
Dickov says he owes much to Wright explaining he was a massive influence early in his career.
"I spoke to him early in the week and, with him also on the touchline, I am sure it won't be dull," explained Dickov.
Latics' manager is also good friends with Dons' manager Karl Robinson.
