Sports Mole previews Wigan Athletic's League Cup fourth round tie against Bradford City at the DW Stadium.

Wigan Athletic will be looking to avoid an upset against League Two outfit Bradford City in their League Cup fourth-round tie at home on Tuesday.

Roberto Martinez's side are struggling in the Premier League at the moment and are just four points above the relegation zone in 15th.

However, the Latics defeated West Ham United 2-1 at the DW Stadium on Saturday and will be keen to make it two home wins out of two against Bradford.

The visitors will head into the clash off the back of a 1-0 away loss to Burton Albion, although that defeat was their first in five competitive matches.

There is no fresh injury news for either side.
