Preview: Wigan Athletic vs. Nottingham Forest

Sports Mole previews Saturday's clash between Wigan Athletic and top-of-the-table Nottingham Forest.

Wigan Athletic take on Nottingham Forest at the DW Stadium on Saturday looking to become only the second side to take points from their visitors so far this season.

The hosts have had a mixed start to their Championship campaign and currently lie in 12th position, while Forest have 10 points from 12 to sit top early on.

For Wigan, Grant Holt is expected to miss out with an injury picked up in midweek, while Shaun Maloney should have recovered and Callum McManaman comes back from suspension.

Forest boss Billy Davies changed his whole team for the League Cup clash, and could well revert to the team that drew with Watford.
