First start for Obita

Latics made two changes to their starting line up for this afternoon's home npower League One match against Milton Keynes Dons.

There was a first start for new loan signing Jordan Obita (pictured) and a recall for James Tarkowski.

Latics (4-4-2): Bouzanis; Brown, Tarkowski, M'voto, Grounds; Croft, Wesolowski, Baxter, Obita; Iwelumo, Barnard. Subs: Cisak, Furman, Byrne, Murray, Taylor, Millar, Winchester.

MK Dons (4-2-3-1): Martin; Otsemebor, McKenzie, Williams, Lewington; Potter, Lines; Powell, Harley, Bowditch; Smith. Subs: Kouo-Doumbe, Chicksen, McLeod, Chadwick, Baldock, Flanagan.
