Debut for Kusunga, Tarkowski injured

Latics handed a debut to new-signing Genseric Kusunga in this afternoon's Sky Bet League 1 match at Rotherham United.

Kusunga (pictured) replaced James Tarkowski who failed to recover from the knock picked up yesterday in training.

James Dayton was also ruled out through a knee injury as Cristian Montana reclaimed a starting spot on the left wing.

The third change from the side which was unlucky to lose at Preston North End on Monday saw David Mellor preferred in the centre of midfield to James Wesolowski.

Rotherham (4-4-2): Shearer; Brindley, Arnason, David, Skarz; Agard, Milsom, Frecklington, Pringle; Revell, Nardiello. Subs: Collin, Mills, Hylton, Bradley, Tubbs, Tidser, Rowe.

Latics (4-4-2): Oxley; Lanzoni, Kusunga, Grounds, Mills; Schmeltz, Smith, Mellor, Montano; Philliskirk, Rooney. Subs: Racgubka, Wesolowski, MacDonald, Winchester, Rodgers, Clarke-Harris, Rusnak.
