Wesolowski, Mellor, Oxley back for Latics

Latics recalled James Wesolowski, David Mellor and Mark Oxley to their starting line up for tonight's FA Cup with Budweiser, first-round replay at Wolves.

Midfield man Wesolowski (pictured) was back in the side after recovering from a hamstring strain.

Mellor returned at left-back while Mark Oxley reclaimed his place in goal.

The three players standing down from the team which beat Notts County in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy were keeper Paul Rachubka, the suspended Jonathan Grounds and ineligible Joseph Mills.

Captain Korey Smith was lining up at right back with Genseric Kusunga switching to the centre of defence in the absence of Grounds while Anton Rodgers partnered Wesolowski in the centre of midfield.

Youngsters Tomos Clarke and John Pritchard were named on the bench.

Wolves were without Kevin Doyle who was away with Ireland, the injured James Henry and Bakary Sako who was rested.

Wolves (4-4-2): Ikeme; Ebanks-Landell, Stearman, Batth, Elokobi; Sigurdarson, McDonald, Price, Golbourne; Griffiths, Cassidy. Subs: Flatt, Davis, Evans, Ricketts, Ismail, Foley, Keita.
