Preview

Latics go in search of their second trophy of the season in the FTDL Cup final against Mansfield Town. Peter Atherton's side have already wrapped up the West Division title of the FTDL and are looking to make it a double, with another final in the Lancashire Senior FA Cup still to be scheduled.

Heading into the game, Latics have lost just twice in their last eight, winning six and scoring 13 times, picking up five clean sheets along the way.

Opponents Mansfield are also in relatively good form, having lost two of their last nine matches, however both were heavy defeats, 5-0 to Rotherham United and 3-0 against Scunthorpe United.

Get behind the lads!

Admission for the game is £5 for adults and £3 for concessions
