Dayton on the tail of Wolves

James Dayton hopes it will be pay-back time on Saturday at Boundary Park where Latics play Wolves in the first round of the FA Cup with Budweiser.

Latics' winger (pictured) admits he was at fault for one of the goals at Molineux where Latics lost 2-0 in Sky Bet League 1 little over a fortnight ago.

"If I get the chance to play against them again, hopefully I will be able to rectify that," he explained.

Dayton says it will be a tough game with Wolves unbeaten in their last nine games.

And he has identified striker Leigh Griffiths as Wolves' dangerman as he has already scored 10 goals.

Dayton, in fact, played against Griffiths last season in Scotland where he was on loan at Hibernian from Wolves.

"Leigh is a top player who scores goals and creates chances from nothing," he said.

Dayton describes it as a big week for Latics who have three home games in the space of a week against Wolves, Notts County in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy, and MK Dons in Sky Bet League 1.

He said: "Cup games are one offs and you want to get on a cup run.

"I wasn't here last year, but you can see what the cup run did for everyone here last season."

Dayton is enjoying the latest chapter of his career.

And he is unfazed by the treatment he receives from some defenders in League One describing it as a compliment that they want to kick him.

Surprisingly, Dayton believes the standard of League One is slightly better than the Scottish Premier League.

And he says it is definitely more interesting as less repetitive than in Scotland where teams play each other three times.
