Smaller bench reduces Latics' options

Latics will have less in reserve in tonight's Johnstone's Paint Trophy, northern section first-round tie at Shrewsbury Town.

Only five substitutes can be named as opposed to seven for games in Sky Bet League 1.

As a result, Lee Johnson travels to Shropshire with a smaller squad as Carl Winchester and Cliff Byrne don't make the 18.

The squad includes Cristian Montano who was only a substitute on Saturday as he was carrying a minor knock which he has recovered from.

Striker Charlie MacDonald again misses out through injury as does Connor Brown who will have surgery later this week on a knee problem.

Squad: Oxley, Grounds, Wesolowski, Tarkowski, Schmeltz, Smith, Rooney, Montano, Mellor, Clarke-Harris, Rodgers, Lanzoni, Dayton, Millar, Mills, Rusnak, Philliskirk, Coleman.

Admission tonight is by payment at the turnstiles at Greenhous Meadow.

Prices have been reduced to £12 for adults and £6 for concessions (over-65's, student producing ID, under-16's and ambulant disabled).
