Football - All change for Latics

FA Cup holders Wigan will begin their quest to return to the Premier League when they travel to Barnsley.

PA Sport Report

Latics have undergone something of a transformationsince their relegation in May, with Owen Coyle replacing Roberto Martinez as manager. Arouna Kone, Antolin Alcaraz and Joel Robles have followed Martinez to Everton but Grant Holt, Marc-Antoine Fortune and Scott Carson have come in.

Coyle is unsure whether Honduras defender Juan Carlos Garcia will play as he only arrived in England on Thursday while fellow new recruit Thomas Rogne is nursing a back injury, but Leon Barnett could start after arriving from Norwich.

Winger Callum McManaman is also a doubt given he has barely featured in pre-season due to an ankle injury.
