Latics recall Rooney

Adam Rooney was recalled to Latics' front line for this afternoon's home Sky Bet League 1 match against his former club Swindon Town.

There was also a starting spot for fellow front man Kirk Millar who impressed when playing 75 minutes against Carlisle last Saturday, but was on the bench at Wolves in midweek.

Manager Lee Johnson was forced to rejig his defence after losing left-back Joseph Mills through injury.

Jonathan Grounds switched to left back, Genseric Kusunga moved from right back to centre half while Carl Winchester dropped from midfield to right back.

Rooney (pictured) and Millar for Mills and Cristian Montano were the two changes from the side which played at Wolves.

Latics (4-4-2): Oxley; Winchester, Kusunga, Tarkowski, Grounds; Philliskirk, Smith, Wesolowski, Dayton; Millar, Rooney. Subs: Rachubka, Schmeltz, Montano, Mellor, Rodgers, Clarke-Harris, Joksts.

Swindon (3-5-2): Foderingham; Hall, N Thompson, Ward; Barthram, Luongo, Mason, Kasim, Byrne; Ranger, Pritchard. Subs: N'Guessan, Waldon, L Thompson, Belford, Branco, Ajose, Gabas.
