If you’re heading to Latics’ first derby of the season this weekend, then don’t forget to pick up your official matchday programme, filled with exclusive interviews and fantastic features.
Chris McCann is the cover star for Sunday’s game, and inside the midfielder talks about his experience of derby days with his former club Burnley, his progression since joining Latics in the summer, and how he’d love to come out on top this weekend against Blackburn Rovers.
Elsewhere inside Andy Liddell talks about his return to Latics with Ipswich Town in our last home game, and how proud he is of what the club has gone on to achieve since he left.
Our Classic Encounter feature relives a real cracker between the two teams from 2007, and Swapping Shirts spots two former Latics men going head to head for different sides.
Paul Rowley looks back on some the quirky incidents thrown up by this fixture over the years and we’ve got our usual pre-match messages from Owen Coyle and skipper Gary Caldwell.
All this and more is waiting for you on Sunday afternoon in the official matchday programme, available from programme sellers around the ground and inside the DW Stadium Club Shop.
