Youth team in derby actionLatics under-18's are in derby action tomorrow at Rochdale in the Football League Youth Alliance's North West Conference.
And striker Haydn Foulds (pictured) will be involved for the first time this season after recovering from a troublesome hip injury.
Latics will be without first-choice keeper Joel Coleman who is injured along with Callum Etches, Idris Benourad and Will Kinder.
They are also without long-term absentees Jack Truelove and Michael Brewster so a number of schoolboys will again be involved.
