Connor plays against Chester

Connor Brown was given a youth-team run out by Latics in their 2-1 victory against Chester City today at Chapel Road.

As it was a friendly, Latics were able to play right-back Brown for the opening period.

Brown (pictured) is desperately in need of match action after being out for over two-and-a-half-months with a knee injury.

He was handed a cameo as a late substitute in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy win against Notts County in midweek.

Academy Manager Tony Philliskirk said: "One if the benefits of arranging the friendly was that we could give Connor a workout.

"He got better as the game went on and his performance was one of the positives to come out of the match."
