SCENE-SETTER...

United come into the game at Boundary Park looking to get their first win since the end of September, which would provide a much-needed boost after a period of time disrupted by the COVID-19 situation at the club.

The games against Solihulll Moors and Mansfield Town in the Emirates FA Cup and Papa John's Trophy respectively this week have provided chances to get important match fitness into numerous players, with a large number having had to miss around two weeks of training, either due to contracting the coronavirus or because of having to self-isolate after coming into contact with someone who had.

Additionally, players who have been signed after the transfer window closed or coming back from injury have also received valuable minutes.

Saturday's fixture is our first in the league for three weeks and, with three games in hand due to the recent postponements, we arrive into it seven points and four places behind Harry Kewell's side.

THE OPPOSITION...

The Latics enter the match having won three of their last four games. They were 3-2 victors at Hampton & Richmond in the FA Cup, with Ben Garrity, former Iron Bobby Grant (who signed in the summer) and Danny Rowe on the scoresheet.

Prior to then, they defeated Cheltenham 2-1 at home in the league with George Blackwood and Harry Clarke striking, lost 2-0 at Salford and won 2-1 at Southend through goals from Grant and Zak Dearnley.

Dearnley is their top scorer in the league with four goals to his name, with ex-United loan goalkeeper Ian Lawlor and former Salford man Carl Piergianni topping their appearance charts.

Two other former Scunthorpe loanees on their books are left-back Cameron Borthwick-Jackson and striker Conor McAleny.

PAST MEETINGS...

United were 2-0 winners away at Oldham on New Year's Day, with Abo Eisa and Matthew Lund getting the goals. It was our most recent victory on the road.
