Sat 14 Mar Wigan Ath. 0 – 2 Leeds Utd. F.A. Cup

Wigan manager Paul Jewell has vowed to make changes for his side’s FA Cup third-round tie with Leeds at the JJB Stadium.

Jewell has adopted a similar policy for the Carling Cup matches this season, although he also threatened to shake up the team after their poor defeats to Blackburn and Birmingham on Saturday and Monday.

Jewell is now without striker Henri Camara after he flew out to link up with Senegal for the African Nations’ Cup, while left-back Leighton Baines is still struggling with a hamstring injury.

Captain Arjan de Zeeuw is also doubtful after breaking his nose at St Andrews. Jewell’s new signing, Austria defender Paul Scharner, is likely to be on the bench.

Wigan (from): Pollitt, Chimbonda, Jackson, Henchoz, Scharner, Johansson, Kavanagh, Mahon, de Zeeuw, Francis, Taylor, Teale, Skoko, Bullard, McCulloch, Baines, Roberts, Connolly.
