New manager makes two changes

New Latics' manager Lee Johnson made two changes for his debut in tonight's basement battle against Hartlepool United at Boundary Park.

There was a first appearance for new loan signing Korey Smith (pictured) and recall for Robbie Simpson.

The two players stepping down to the bench from Saturday's home defeat by AFC Bournemouth were Chris Iwelumo and Jordan Obita.

Hartlepool were without the vastly experienced striker Ritchie Humphreys who was ruled out through injury.

Latics (4-2-3-1): Bouzanis; Brown, Tarkowski, M'voto, Grounds; Wesolowski, K Smith; Croft, Baxter, Simpson; Barnard. Subs: Cisak, Iwelumo, Montano, Obita, Byrne, Millar, Mellor.

Hartlepool (4-5-1): Flinders; Austin, Collins, Hartley, Horwood; Franks, Walton, Luscombe, Sweeney, Poole; Howard. Subs: Monkhouse, Rutherford, Holden, Hawkins, McHugh, James, Wyke.
