Latics' players walk disciplinary tightropeLatics have three more key players one booking away from a one-match ban.
Jose Baxter (pictured), Cristian Montano and Cliff Byrne have all picked up four yellow cards for the campaign.
And one further caution will result in a one-match suspension.
Latics have already had Jean-Yves M'voto recently banned for three matches following his sending off at Crawley while Dean Furman and James Wesolowski were both suspended for last Saturday's npower League One game at Bournemouth after collecting five cautions.

Manager Paul Dickov accepts suspensions as part and parcel of the game saying that is why they have a squad.
