Latics unchanged, Smith and Simpson on bench

Caretaker Manager Tony Philliskirk named an unchanged starting line up for Latics' FA Cup with Budweiser, fifth-round tie against Everton at Boundary Park.

Philliskirk went with the same 11 players who kicked off last Saturday when Latics beat MK Dons 3-1.

That meant the fit-again Matt Smith and Robbie Simpson (pictured) had to settle for places on the bench.

Everton's determination to win the cup was demonstrated by their line up as they fielded a full-strength side.

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

Everton (4-4-2): Howard; Neville, Jagielka, Distin, Baines; Osman, Gibson, Fellaini, Pienaar; Jelavic, Anichebe. Subs: Mucha, Heitinga, Oviedo, Mirallas, Naismith, Hitzlsperger, Duffy.
